How to View Individual Student’s Forum Posts

If you have been using Moodle 2.0, you should know by now that many of the editing is done through accessing links on the left-hand navigation bar. In the past, you could access student forum posts, grades, activity reports, and other activities through tabs at the top of their profiles. Those links are now found in the Navigation block. Once you select a student, you will be able to view student information in this Navigation block.

Navigation Block

Make sure you have the Navigation block installed on your course.

To install new blocks, turn editing on for your course and select “Navigation” from the list of items. Move this block up at the top, for easy viewing for students.

Cannot locate Navigation block, but have it installed?

Tip: You may have your block undocked, which will appear as a tab on the left of your site. Remember, with Moodle 2.0, you can undock any of the blocks.
