Blocks

Jump to: navigation, search

Blocks are items which may be added to the left or right or centre column of any page in Moodle. They may also be added to the centre of the Dashboard.

Overview of blocks

Any block can be made 'sticky' so that it appears in all the contexts below, such as throughout a course or a particular activity - see Block settings.

If a responsive theme, such as Boost, is used, blocks will be accessible from the bottom of smaller screens, below the main content.
