By adding the block Module Navigation Moodle shows a “table of contents” automatically picked up from the Section name.

NOTE In the current Moodle (from July 2015) a table of contents appears automatically in the NAVIGATION block in every module.

You can also add images, a Wordle1 or a Prezi2, even using images for navigation.


  • Start simple
  • Don’t make the images too big or overdo it with too many
  • Keep graphics discreet and useful to students – should fit with the overall University / Moodle design
  • If students have to scroll every time they visit the page, they will get frustrated!
  • Use the blocks available such as Module Navigation
  • Keep any embedded items such as Prezi or video to a minimum
  • Put just a few graphic items on the front page or it will take too long to load…
