Tip 2: Change the layout for new courses
Moodle courses are automatically created using the topic layout, i.e. having 10 topic sections in the course by default (see Figure 1).
Figure 1: Moodle course in Topic Sections
We have prepared two layouts for teachers, topic layout with 6 topic sections (see Figure 2) and weekly layout (see Figure 3). If you would like to use one of these layouts, please send the Moodle course code(s) to eLearningteam@hku.hk and we will help you to change the layout of the course(s). Note that this should be done before you start to upload course materials. Changing the course layout during running a Moodle course is NOT advisable.
