In trying to encourage greater student engagement with their studies, lecturers can be caught unsure of how to proceed.

Moodle has improved since its introduction and now it adjusts the content to match the screen size. Does that matter? Results from a recent module survey suggests that 75% of students access Moodle from their phone which would suggest that when we design our Moodle pages we may need to think about the placement of information.
