Blocks: Catalogue

Maintained by Photo de Brice ErrandoneaBrice Errandonea
Provides a visual and central place for a teacher to access everything he can use in his course (activities, reports, blocks, …) Frequently used items can be marked as favorites for quick access. Unless the teacher wants to delete or move an activity or block, he rarely needs to switch to editing mode. Students can also use the Catalogue to access the tools they're allowed to. No need, for users, to learn a first method to add an activity, then a different one to add a block, then a third one to use enrolment methods, and so on, searching the four corners of the UI... With Catalogue, it's the same method for all of these tools and they all can be found at the same place.

Catalogue 2.0

Release notes

What's new in version 2.0 ?

  • Course map : Navigate throughout your course. When you're inside an activity or resource, you can immediatly browse to the next (or previous) one by clicking an arrow, without a detour through the course main page.
  • When you add an activity, resource or custom label, you can choose the exact place where you want to put it. Not necessarily at the end of a section (image 5).
  • New list icons. One main color for each list.
  • Subcategories are now displayed in columns rather than in rows (image 2 and 3).
  • If editing mode is active, you can remove favorites directly from the block (image 4).
  • More responsive design.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented to find modules' description strings under some configurations.
  • Support for Moodle 3.3
Moodle 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3
