As students progress through their years here at Elon, their transcripts naturally grow. With each semester’s close, students enroll in new courses, and often times, their Moodle homepages become cluttered with long lists of old classes. With so many courses listed, it is difficult for students to decipher what’s new and what’s old.

To avoid this mess, faculty can remove old courses from their students’ views in Moodle. With a few quick steps, professors can help students from previous semesters stay organized.
Additionally, by reducing the number of available courses in Moodle, instructors and students may make Moodle run faster.
