This refers to Moodle 3.6 from July 2019 onward

The module overview allows you to filter how you view modules you are enrolled on and also change the way they are displayed.

When you first encounter the new Module overview the filter will be set to All.

This filter will show all the modules you are enrolled onto.

You can change the filter by pressing on All.  

This will open up the list of filter options.


Choosing All will list all of your past, current or future modules.

In Progress

In Progress will list only your current modules.


This will filter the modules to show all your upcoming modules that have yet to start.


Past will display only those modules that have finished or are from previous terms.


You have the option to view only those modules which you have starred.

Modules can be starred by clicking on the three dots next to the module title and selecting Star this module.

Removed from view

You also have the option to remove modules from your view on the dashboard.

Modules can be removed from the dashboard by clicking on the three dots next to the module title and selecting Remove from my view.

Changing the order of modules

Modules can be sorted by when they were last accessed or by module name in alphabetical order.

To sort your modules press the Sort by dropdown menu and select either Module name or Last accessed.

Changing how your modules are displayed
