Set Up Your Course Header

The first section in your Moodle course is called the header.

The header is a good place to put information about your course, such as:

  • Course title
  • A course banner
  • Instructor contact information and office hours
  • Short overview of the course
  • Syllabus
  • Welcome message

You can edit the header as you would any other section. For more detailed instructions on designing sections, visit the Content section of our help pages.

About the News Forum

The News forum in the header is not a fully functional discussion board. Only you (and not students) can post to it. For this reason, it is recommended that you either reserve its use for course announcements or hide the News forum from students.
