Course description plugin is also added to the Moodle plugins database in this week which displays the course name and the course description on the course page (at the location where it is placed).
The course description module enables text and multimedia to be inserted into the course page in between links to other resources and activities. Course descriptions are very versatile and can help to improve the appearance of a course if used thoughtfully.
Course descriptions may be used
- To split up a long list of activities with a subheading or an image
- To display an embedded sound file or video directly on the course page
- To add a short description to a course section
