On the right side of your page in Moodle are a series items that Moodle calls 'Blocks'.

There are several blocks in your Moodle course such as:

  • Navigation
  • Key Course Milestones
  • Quick Links
  • Search Forums
  • Administration

In the top right corner of each block are tools you can use to either minimize or move the block to the left side of your browser as a tab.

Docking, or moving, the block will move it to a tab arranged vertically on the left side of your page.

Please note: each block will have to be docked separately
