Join Mary Cooch for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding events blocks, part of Moodle 2.5 Essential Training.
We've look in previous videos at adding course announcements…to the news forum, and events to the calendar.…We can highlight these important dates even more…by displaying them directly on the course page.…Using a couple of blocks which we'll add now.…To add blocks to the size of the course page, we…need to have the editing turned on, which we have done.…And then we scroll down to the drop down, Add a block and click the arrow.…The first block we're…going to add is called the Latest News block.…The blocks appear in alphabetical order.…So we click this, and when the…page refreshes, it automatically appears at the bottom.…
But to move it, we can simply click and drag…it to the part of the course that we like.…The latest news block displays events which have been added to…the news forum and so they're directly appear on the course page.…As is the course welcome event we added in an earlier video.…The second block we're going to add which we go…by clicking Add a Block is the upcoming events block.…So if we scroll down alphabetically and add the upcoming events block.…
