The Dashboard provides students and instructors with links to their courses. The CLE was recently upgraded to Moodle version 3.3 which includes improved dashboard features. This document will highlight the new and improved features.
More details are available on the following tabs of this document.
How does it work?
There are two main tabs in the new Course Overview block—the Timeline tab and the Courses tab. The Timeline tab can be sorted by dates or by courses. The Courses tab can be sorted by whether the course are “In progress”, “Past” or “Future”.
Sort By Dates
- When sorted by dates, sections for Recently overdue (if applicable), Today, Next 7 days, and Next 30 days display.
- Users can click to go directly to a required item – for example, ‘Add submission’ to submit an assignment if you are a student. Instructors will see “Grade” link.
- When an activity such as an Assignment is submitted (or graded if you are an instructor), it is no longer displayed.
- Activities such as Assignment or Quiz without due date won’t be displayed in this view.

Sort By Courses
Sort By Courses view shows activities filtered by course. If a course is using Activity Completion Tracking, it shows a circle with a percentage completion icon. This percentage shows how many of the activities with activity completion settings have been completed so far.

In the Courses tab, users can view their current, future or past courses, which is determined by the course start and end date. Courses without the end date will be listed as a current course. You can set course start/end date in the Course Settings page in each course.
