There are no configuration options for this module.


Shows course navigation menu. Configuration parameters let you decide wich links should be shown.


To use this module and the other course-related modules, we recommend this procedure:

  • Set up a new menu, with no module attached
  • Create a new menu item ther of type Joomdle->Course
  • Get the Item id of the new menu item, and enter it in Joomdle configuration, "Course view itemid"
  • Set the course modules to appear only on this itemid


Shows course students.


Configuration parameters are:

  • Show this number of students at max
  • Use tooltips

Please not that this module can only be used in "course pages", like the wrapper or the course view, as it needs to show data related to a specific course.

Configuration parameters are:

  • Question category to pick questions from
  • Number of questions to show in quiz

NOTE: This module is only available for J1.6+ and Moodle 2.2+.
