My team gets a lot of requests to change the course-listing at the main page of our moodle installation to a much smaller presentation. We thought about how to achieve this and came to the conclusion that a folder-like presentation would be the best way.
Example of our present situation:
- department A of school 1
- department B of school 1
- department C of school 1
- department A of school 2
and so on...
This consumes a lot of space at the main page.
What we would like to have is a simple listing of all schools without their subsequent institutes, but with the possibility to click on a single school and to get the subsequent institutes and courses displayed.
The cherry on top of the sundae would be the possibility to save the settings, which folders (schools) are usually open for a single user and save that info in a cookie or better, in the users data, so that every user gets a complete presentation of his favored schools, but only a minimized presentation of the other existing schools (just their names).
