Why use them?

Every Moodle course is divided into separate sections. Depending on the course format, the content is structured into topics, weeks.

All Moodle courses have a General section at the top, which allows you to display a summary or general information about the course ( e.g. contact details for teaching staff, learning objectives… ).

The remaining sections contain more specific content, resources and activities relating to the different weeks, topics or aspects of the course.
