Wie kann ich den Namen des Trainers aus der Kursbeschreibung entfernen?

  • Standardmäßig werden die Namen der Trainer/innen in der Kursbeschreibung angezeigt. Wenn Sie das nicht möchten, klicken Sie im Block Einstellungen > Website-Administration > Darstellung > Kursverwaltung und entfernen Sie das Häkchen bei Trainer/in.

Wie kann ich die Namen der Trainer/innen ohne Bearbeitungsrecht in der Kursbeschreibung anzeigen lassen?

  • Standardmäßig werden nur die Namen der Trainer/innen mit Bearbeitungsrecht in der Kursbeschreibung angezeigt. Wenn Sie auch die Trainer/innen ohne Bearbeitungsrecht anzeigen möchten, klicken Sie im Block Einstellungen > Website-Administration > Darstellung > Kursverwaltung und setzen Sie ein Häkchen bei Trainer/in ohne Bearbeitungsrecht.

Einige meiner Kurse zeigen die Kursbeschreibung an, andere haben nur ein Informationssymbol info.gif. Warum?

  • Categories which have fewer than ten courses will show the full summary but those with more will only show the information icon. If you want them all to show the full summary then change the number to a number lower in Settings>Site Administration>Front Page>Front page settings. The courses will then display over more than one page but with the full summary

How can I make my course home page look more like a webpage?

Often when a course has a lot of content, students and teachers find the long scrolling tedious and would prefer a 'neater' appearance with hyperlinks to sections in a similar way to the way pages on websites work.

  • Anchors/section links can help. But the course page can still be long.
  • Hiding the activities shortens the list for students, but then they can not be selected by students.

One method which might be useful is to put the activities into sections which are then made 'unseen' to the student.

Basic Example

  • Set the number of topics in the course setting to 1 more than students will see.
    • For example, you plan on the students being able to see 6 topics, set it for 7.
  • Add activities in topic 7, such as a quiz (in our example)
  • Get the url of your quiz
    • Copy it and keep it somewhere (such as notepad) for later use
  • Go back to course admin>settings and change your topic/weeks to 6
    • Or one fewer than you had before
  • The section with your quiz will no longer be on the page that the student sees
  • In another section, make a hyperlink to the quiz using its url
    • You can also put it in a topic summary, label or
    • as a resource (link to a file or website)

You will find that the quiz is accessible to students even though the section does not physically appear on the course page for the students. You have shortened the page.

More advanced example

  • There is a youtube video that gives an example of how to do this hereThe video is of a Moodle 1.9 course but the principle still applies.
  • You can actually set up your whole course using this method.
  • Set your course to have two topics (or more if you wish)
  • Ignore topic 1 - do not place anything in it.
  • In topic 2, use the resource: Page to make pages relating to your units of work/topics
  • Add all your resources to topic 2
  • Copy the resources urls into the relevant webpage as hyperlinks
  • In topic 0, the course summary make hyperlinks -or better- images hyperlinked - to each webpage which contains the activities of that unit/topic
  • Go back to course settings and set the number of visible topics to 1.

The teacher will see the hidden sections as "orphaned" items on their course page. However; the student will only see the top of the page. When they click on a link in the header, they are taken to the hidden webpage resources, where they select the resource or activity they wish. This creates a very short visual page but keeps all the course material within the course.
