Course categories organize courses for all Moodle site participants. The default course category on a new Moodle site is "Miscellaneous" (although this can be renamed) A Creador de curso, Administrador or Mánager can put all courses in the Miscellaneous category. However, teachers and students will find it easier to find their classes if they are organized in descriptive categories.

The list of courses within a category by default shows the teachers and the summary of each course. If the number of courses within a category exceeds 9 (10 or more), then a short list without teachers and summary is shown.

Añadiendo una categoría

La mayoría de las personas organizan sus cursos por departamentos y colegios, o por temas. Asegúrese de probar los esquemas organizacionales con unos pocos usuarios, antes de registrar una gran cantidad de cursos, para ahorrar tiempo moviéndolos luego

Añadir categorías es muy fácil:

  • Ir a "Administración" > "Administración del sito" > "Cursos" > "añadir una categoría"
  • Complete los detalles requeridos y de clic en "Crear categoría"
  • Otra forma de lograrlo es yendo a "Administración" > "administración de sitio" > "Administrar cursos y categorías" y de clic en el link "Crear una nueva categoría".

Adding sub-categories

  • Sometimes it might be useful to have a sub-category of a course. For example, you might have a category "Science" and wish to have sub-categories "Biology", "Chemistry" and "Physics".
  • You can make one category a subcategory of another by checking the box to the left of its name and then by selecting from the drop down menu 'Move selected categories to' You can create a new, empty sub-category by clicking the actions icon next to its name in Administration>Site administration>Courses>Manage courses and categories. and selecting 'Create new subcategory.'

Hiding categories

  • Categories may be easily hidden or shown via Administration>Site administration>Courses>Manage courses and categories and clicking the 'eye' icon of the category you wish to hide. Hidden categories are only visible to site administrators or those with the capability to "view hidden courses".
