This guide gives you an overview of how to structure your Moodle space and links you to resources for further support. The guide will cover how to add blocks, how to add activities and resources, and how to change course details.
The following course formats are available at Warwick:
|Format name||Format description|
|Topics||Each section fully expanded with a title and contents visible in a long list|
|Weekly||Organised with a section for each week of your course|
|Collapsed topics||A version of the topics format that adds collapsing behaviour to sections to reduce page size|
|Social||Designed around a forum for a more free-form experience|
