Topics format

When using the Topics course format, courses are organized into sections. Each section can consist of activities, resources and labels.

User menu

The User Menu is located in the top right corner of the page header, typically next to the student’s name when they are logged in. This is where students will get access to their profile, grader reports, access to the home page and log out.

Administrators, Managers, Course Creators and Teachers will also find an option to temporarily switch their role to preview how content will look to students however, be aware that this does not always work correctly. We recommend that you have a separate Moodle account to preview content as a student.
