Which format should I choose for my Moodle course?

From September 2023 all academic modules (i.e. the ones with a module code that are linked to Banner, our Student Record System) will use the new Brookes VLE template which provides accessibility improvements, consistency and standardises layout, number of core sections and labelling.

The template is based on the Moodle course format Topics.

By selecting a core format, as opposed to one of the previously available 3rd party plugin course formats we are mitigating the risk of any updates to Moodle introducing compatibility issues or additional restyling.

For more guidance on how to use the new Brookes VLE template, please see our documentation.

Module Leaders of non academic courses have control over how their course will be structured by changing course format. Choosing the right format can help you structure and organise your course and enable students to find the information they need quickly
