Re: Hideable content in Moodle

So, I don't know much about moodle, but do students and instructors have accounts?

If they could set a setting there that always showed or always hid these things, then people could get whatever view they needed most.

At a former job we did have an education product, a quiz where students had to click away the result ("good job" or "sorry, missed that one") after every question, and a head mouse user mentioned this really tired them out. So it would be good to ask why some div are being hidden (removing minor tasks from a page with lots and lot sof tasks seems like it could be a decent cognitive argument for example).

If people can't set things up the way they need, this likely needs user testing.
