Dedicated to enhancing TRU's online learning and teaching environment.


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

There are several blocks in your Moodle course such as:

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

In the top right corner of each block are tools you can use to either minimize, or dock the block.

Docking 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
