Navigating the Moodle 3.5 Dashboard

The upgrade to Moodle 3.5 has created some confusion when viewing the new dashboard. To better access your current courses, please consider installing the Navigation Block on your dashboard page, giving you a dedicated link to the courses you are teaching in the Spring of 2019.
To add a block from the Dashboard:

1. If you are not already on the Moodle Dashboard page, click on Dashboard in the upper left hand corner.


2. Click on Customize this page on the right side of the screen.

3. Scroll down to the bottom of the LEFT sidebar, all the way to the bottom, and click on ADD A BLOCK. (Note: The Add a block will not be visible if you have not clicked on Customize this page.)

4. Choose Navigation – this will automatically put the Navigation block on your right side bar as shown.

You can then click on the category you want, revealing a list of all your semester courses within that category.

5. Click on Stop Customizing this page in the upper right corner.

An alternative to the above is to change the end dates in your past courses so that they no longer appear in In Progress. This can be done through the Edit Settings in your courses.
