Blocks

A Block in Moodle is an item that can be added to the right (or, if the theme allows, left) of a Moodle course page. They provide extra information or links to aid in learning. In WordPress, blocks would be called Widgets. They can also include RSS news feed, a calendar, links to blogs, a glossary of terms, latest announcements, online users, upcoming events, random glossary entries, private files and more. Moodle also includes an HTML block which can be customized to contain any combination of images, text and links. To add a block, turn on editing in your course and click Add Block in the Nav Drawer. Once added, you can drag and drop the block into position.
