Here’s a cool new block that provides a great way to either spice up a user’s myMoodle page or to create a sticky block experience that verifies a student’s identity for the duration of their Moodle activities.

The block is the “User Information Block” and was created/contributed by Federico Botti.  You can download it for Moodle 1.9 or 2.0 at

Download [].  Please note: there is a typo in the Readme file and installation instructions at The name of  the block folder should be “userinfo” not “user_info”.

Shown below in the screenshots is the version for 1.9.  Pretty handy shortcuts to messages and courses at all time.  Seems like a great way to “Facebookify” your Moodle experience for students.
