In Moodle, you have some options to customise your learning space. This topic gives you a brief introduction about your Moodle Dashboard and your Moodle unit.

Other useful blocks such as your Timeline and important notices are on the right panel. You can access your preferences by clicking on your profile on the top right.

Links to the units you are enrolled in can be found in the Home tab of your my.monash portal. They are also listed in the Unit overview block in your Moodle Dashboard.
The workspace is the entire area you see in a Moodle unit, as in the example below.
