Navigation block

From MoodleDocs

The navigation block is used to provide navigation links when using the Clean or More theme or a custom theme based on Clean.

(The Boost theme in Moodle 3.2 onwards uses a navigation drawer rather than the navigation block.)

  • If enabled, the navigation block will appear on every page of the site. It contains an expanding tree menu which includes Dashboard, Site Pages and Courses. What appears in the navigation block depends on the role of the user, where they are in the Moodle site, and any settings that have been applied globally.
  • The administrator can change settings (such as the default home page) from Navigation in Site Administration.
  • If the Dashboard is forced and the navigation block hidden, students will find it harder to see courses they are not enrolled in.

Here are examples of the navigation block:
