Hiding an Item or Section in a Moodle Course

Within Moodle, a user has the ability to hide particular course items or whole sections at a time as they progress in creating their Moodle course. A time where this would be especially helpful is if you are proactive in adding content for the entire span of the course, but you don't necessarily want participants to view and have access to the content yet. Check out the following instructions to learn how to hide specific course content.

Hiding a Specific Course Item

  1. Navigate to the gear in the upper right hand corner and click Turn editing on.

  1. Go to the section in which you are looking to hide an item.
  2. Go to the item and click the Edit menu associated with it. Choose Hide

Hiding an Entire Section

  1. Navigate to the gear in the upper right hand corner and click Turn editing on.

  1. Go to the section that you want to hide.
  2. Find the Edit button associated with the whole section. From the menu choose Hide Week or Hide Topic

 

When you are ready to share these items with participants, follow the same instructions to access the Edit menus, but instead of hiding the items, choose to show the items.
