Custom Course Menu is a new plugin for Moodle which allows you to add a block which displays the enrolled courses to students in a highly customizable manner depending upon your course requirements.

Features:

The block is highly configurable and can be adjusted to display a lot of features to both teachers and students like:

  • Simple install
  • Intuitive controls
  • Manually hide courses or categories from the list
  • Customize sort order of courses and categories
  • Expand/collapse course categories
  • Favorites “category”
  • Last # viewed courses “category”
  • Site administrators get an All courses… link

When I tested the block on my Moodle 3.1 development server, the block worked like a charm and working as mentioned in the plugin installation.
