1.2 Dashboard

When you login to Moodle, the first page is “Dashboard.” Go to your participating “Course” from “Dashboard.”

Dashboard screen

The “●% complete” number shown for each subject is the percentage of completion for all activities that have been presented and completed, as well as those that will be presented in the future. This means that even if you complete all the activities presented at the time, you may not get 100%. Also, if the total amount of activities in the entire course changes, the number may be smaller.

How to switch which course to display

You can switch the courses displayed in the “Course overview” section of the dashboard by using the filter (red box below).

  • All (except removed from view): Displays all courses except those that have been removed from the view.
  • In progress: Shows courses that are currently being offered.
  • Future: Displays courses that are not yet open.
  • Past: Displays courses that are no longer in session.
  • Starred: Shows courses that have been set to be starred (instructions are here).
  • Removed from view: Displays courses that have been removed from view (instructions are here).

The list of courses displayed under My Courses on the left side are all “In progress” courses, and this view cannot be toggled.

How to make a course starred

  1. If you want to distinguish frequently used courses, you can add a star to them. Click the “…” button to the right of the course and select “Star this course”.

How to remove/redisplay a course
