The blocks that appear in the left column of a Moodle course provide additional functionality over and above what is available via Add an activity or resource. Standard blocks such as ADMINISTRATION and NAVIGATION are always visible but you may want to add others.

To add a block:

  1. Turn editing on.
  2. Scroll down the left hand column to the bottom and locate ADD A BLOCK.
  1. Click the drop down to reveal the blocks available on LSE’s Moodle. (For detailed information on standard Moodle blocks check Blocks on Moodle Docs.)
  2. Select the required block e.g. Reading List and it will appear directly above ADD A BLOCK. You can then move or configure it as required. See Revise the section structure of your course.
