This refers to Moodle 2.7 from July 2015 onward

Closing and docking blocks

You can make the Moodle blocks less intrusive by closing or docking them.

Step by step

1. Close up the blocks by clicking on the up symbol in the top right corner – that closes up a block to just the title

2. You can also move blocks to the dock. Click the  icon in the top right corner of the block header.

3. This will move it to the dock. You can:

  • move your cursor over the block to display it (see screenshot below) and use it as normal,
  • click the  icon to return it to its original location
  • click the  icon at the bottom of the left column to return all docked blocks to their original locations
