The basic structure of a Moodle Classroom

Moodle Classrooms are structured in 2 or 3 columns. On the left, links to the sections in the classroom are shown, as well as other important navigation links. On the right, if activated, you will see the blocks (they add different functionalities). In the central column the course sections are shown, where the resources and activities are created.
