Join George Papazian for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing how courses are displayed, part of Moodle Administration Essential Training.
- There are a few settings in the Appearance section…that determine how courses are displayed…which I wanna show you.…And keep in mind, as with many settings,…depending on the preference of the author,…some of them could be nullified…on the theme that you're using.…The first we see on this page is Course Contacts.…That determines which courses are shown…in the Course Description.…Typically and logically, this is the teacher by default,…but you might wanna have the teacher assistant, for example,…showing up on the Course Description.…I'll just leave it as teacher.…
The next setting allows the displaying…of the course extended names next to the short names.…If I check this and save,…right now I'm on the course home page,…but if I go to My Home, and then I go to Site Home,…I can see my courses listed,…and you can see the short name is listed,…the long name of the course is listed,…and we can see the teacher show up.…That's Sally, and if you remember for marketing purposes,…we had a little colloquial term for our teachers.…
