Stealth Activities in the CLE!

Stealth mode imageDid you know that you could place any Activity or Resource into Stealth Mode? If you’re not sure what Stealth Mode is, no need to worry, the Learning Tech Group is here to explain!

What is Stealth Mode?
Earlier versions of the CLE allowed activities (or resources) to be hidden inside “extra” weeks or topics, but still be accessible to students. These were known as “orphaned” activities and allowed instructors and course staff to achieve particular designs for their courses.
In January 2018, The CLE was upgraded to Moodle version 3.3 and now you can place any activity or resource into “stealth mode” which is helpful when you would like to link to resources and activities from a page or book but do not want to display the item within the section.
Watch the video below for a brief overview on Stealth Activities and how to use them in your course.
