    • About me...
    • UnMoodle your Moodle site
      • ‘Text book’ techniques
      • Sneaky tricks
      • Software changes
      Case Study: A fictitious course
    • Why is it so?
      Moodle has a deliberately
      structure...
    • Which is great when:
      There aren’t lots of topics/weeks
      and
      There aren’t too many resources/activities
      otherwise...
    • The
      Scroll
      Of
      Death...
      Otherwisewe may face...
    • No one single cure... ...but there is hope!
    • Tip 1: Better use of tools, e.g.
    • Tip 2: Graphical navigation
      Using a graphical navigation label to help users navigate the course
      • Can replace the navigation structure completely
      • Can be in labels or as an HTML block
      • Hinges on linking to topics
    • Aside...
      There are also alternative course formats that may be suitable and do the same thing such as the accordion format
    • Tip 3: One very sneaky trick*
      The ‘n-1’ topics method:
      youtube.com/watch?v=XtHPUh_BaxM (or search for ‘Moodle unseen’)
      * Method not endorsed by anyone, may lead to unexpected results causing confusion and delay.
    • And one minor software change
      Graphical navigation good, but first view is still potentially big
      NetSpot’s Team Moodle have made small mod to allow first view to focus on Topic 1
      (http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-19753)
    • Set default topic in Course Settings
    • Questions?
