Editing symbols on the course page

Editing symbols on the course page


If you have switched the course page into editing mode by clicking on the button "Turn editing on" in the upper right corner you will see various icons to edit, move, duplicate, delete, hide etc. content on the course page.


 - the pencil symbol allows to rename an element directly on the course page.

 - with this move symbol you can move course elements directly with the mouse (Drag&Drop).

 - the group icon allows to change the group mode for an activity with one click: no groups / visible groups / separated groups. The icon is only displayed for those activities that allow using them in group mode.

The drop-down menu "Edit" combines different symbols to edit the corresponding element on your course page:

  • Edit settings - Calls up the settings page of an activity or material.
  • Move right/left - Moves the element inwards to the right or outwards to the left.
  • Hide - Makes the item invisible to students.
  • Duplicate - Creates a copy of the item with the identical settings.
  • Delete - Removes the element from the course page.

For course sections, the editing options differ slightly.


With the "Hide" function you can control whether an element is visible to students in the course (see figure below). To link the visibility of an element to conditions such as date, group membership or achieved grade, use the restrict access function. You will find these in the setting options of an element.
