LearningSpace – How to organise your courses

If you are enrolled on lots of courses and are struggling to locate what you want, it’s a good idea to use the Course Overview (legacy) block. This block has been recently installed and enables  you to drag courses into the order that you want. It also has an additional ‘Favourites’ feature which moves course links to a separate ‘Favourites’ tab for even faster access.

Organising your course list

Adding to favourites

You can also add courses to favourites so that they will appear in a separate list on the favourites tab. To do this:

  1. Click the ‘Stop customising this page’ button (top right)

    A star icon (favourite) will display before each course name
