In Moodle some of the things users need to quickly do can be buried in the middle of a form, without an obvious label.
In order to help out our staff and tutors we added a quick editor toobar which has the common settings that Moodle editors often need to change in their sites. The toolbar is displayed to editors at the top of the page when editing is on.
The bar allows editors to quickly :
- Make site available to students / make site unavailable to students
- Increase the number of course sections
- Add a course site image (local customisation)
Anecdotal evidence suggests the editor bar has been warmly welcomed by academics.
