This refers to Moodle 3.11 from August 2022 onwards  

When Moodle first loads you will be presented with a screen similar to the following (your list of courses/modules) will differ).

The Moodle Dashboard

This is your Dashboard, which (like other Moodle pages) is divided into two columns.

The main left area displays all the courses (modules) that you are enrolled upon in Moodle. The right hand column has a number of useful blocks offering information such 'Upcoming events' (and deadlines) or 'Calendar'.

Chanfing number of modules that can be view in the dashboard

Navigation arrows

1. In the 'Module overview' you can filter your modules to show just those 'In progress' (current year and ongoing modules), 'Future' (next academic year and later) and 'Past' – note that 'All' are visible by default.

You can also filter by 'Starred' or 'Removed from my view'

2. You can sort modules alphabetically by  'Module name', or by date 'Last accessed'. There’s also a Recently Accessed Modules block which shows those you have most recently accessed.

3. You can view the modules as 'Card' – the default, or as a 'List', or including the 'Summary'. Experiment to see which is right for you

4. You can show up to 48 modules on each screen.

Click the arrows to move between screens.

5. You will also see a progress bar in any modules in which progress is tracked (most are not tracked)

6. Clicking on the three dots at the end of a module’s name allows you to 'Star this module' (or favourite), or to 'Remove from my view'. You can then filter by 'Starred' or 'Removed from my view', as in box 1

To return to the Dashboard from anywhere in Moodle click Dashboard (top left).  Don’t forget to check your further pages of modules, if any.
