Following the learnonline upgrade on January 6, orphaned activities (used to hide activities and resources) are no longer available in Moodle and have been replaced with functionality named “Available but not shown on course page” that allows you to hide activities or resources and still make them available to students, within the relevant week or topic, rather than putting them in orphaned sections at the bottom of the page. This makes it much easier for ongoing management of activities and resources.
All orphaned activities and resources were converted to “Available but not show on course page” during the learnonline upgrade and no action is required by course coordinators and content developers.
More information about using “Available but not show on course page” functionality is available in the following help resource. Please contact the help desk team if you need assistance with the new concept.
