The Collapsed Weeks course format is a contributed code module. It is similar to the standard Weekly format for a course. The current week is always toggled on.

The code was based on the Collapsed Topics contributed code module.

Download

You can download the format from the Modules and Plugins Database. Full installation instructions are included in the install for Moodle 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0 . The Moodle 2.0 version is still in development, so please look at the 'readme' before installing.

Usage

Selecting

To select the format, simply choose it from the list of course formats in the course settings. To show / hide a topic just click on its toggle.

Changing the look

The Arrow If you want to change the look and style of the arrow, simply change 'arrow_down.png' and 'arrow_up.png'.

FAQ

Q. How do I report an issue with Collapsed Weeks?

A. Raise an issue on Moodle Tracker or post a discussion on the Moodle Course Formats Forum

Q. Is Collapsed Weeks Moodle 2.0 compatible?

A. The latest version is getting there, but please use at your own risk. It does not have all of the desired changes to make it fully 2.0 compliant as I maintain it whilst Moodle 2.0 is still changing as development progresses.
