Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: My home.

This page really needs improving. Please see the page comments for suggestions of what to include, then remove this template when you're done.

Template:Moodle site - basic structure

My Moodle is a customizable "dashboard" page for providing users with links to their courses and activities within them, such as unread forum posts and upcoming assignments.

The My Moodle (or My home) page

The My Moodle page is available for all users via the Navigation block. This page displays the courses that a user is associated with and allows them to customise the page blocks to show information relevant for them.

Students see a list of assessment activities due for the paper along with the due date and an indication if they have submitted or not. Teachers see the assessment activities and the due date only.

Admin Options

Administrators can set a default (and optionally force) site-wide layouts for My Moodle(via Site administration > Appearance > Default My Moodle page).

The My Moodle page can be given more prominence when set as the main "home page" for users. Administrators can set the default home page for users to either the Site Home page, The My Moodle page or allow users to choose their preference (via Site administration > Appearance > Navigation).
