This refers to Moodle 3.8 from September 2020 onwards

  • If you are enrolled at category level, e.g., you are an Observer on all modules in a School, then these will NOT appear in your My Modules.
  • Modules on full colour backgrounds are active, and available to (and visible to) students.


  • Modules on a lighter colour are visible to staff but not students.  You may find these at the end of your listing.

If you are enrolled on a module

If you know you are enrolled on a module but cannot see it, see How can I change the order of the modules on my Dashboard?

If you think you should be able to see a module you are teaching on you can become enrolled by:

  1. Contact the module convenor or other editing teacher on the module and ask for them to add you (an editing teacher can enrol another at the same level)
  2. Contact your School administrator who will have or know who has the rights to add you to modules
  3. If the two strategies above fail, contact and tell us
    • Your full name
    • University username
    • Full name of module you wish to be enrolled on - as it appears in Moodle or SATURN/Campus Solutions
    • Module code if applicable
    • Level of access if not editing teacher (see list of roles in Moodle)

If you have access to modules at category (or School) level

In some Schools all staff have access to modules as Observers (i.e. you can view but not participate) or Teachers (to be able to see all marks for all students in the School).

Individuals may also be given special access as School Support or Category Manager, then you will not see your modules in the My Modules on your My home page.

To locate a module which you have category level access to:

  • In the 'Navigation' button (the hamburger icon on the top right) Click Site home
    1. Browse to your category (e.g., School)  by clicking through the drop-down menus under "Module Categories"
    2. Search for a module name or code by typing a keyword, code or module title into the "Search modules" box and click 'Go'
