Moodle mini tip #1
Is there a shortcut URL to a course?
This is a question people sometimes ask.
Rather than using the full long URL to link to a course main page, is there a more friendly or simple way to do this?
The answer is “Yes” !
Usually a Moodle course is identified in the URL by it’s unique courseid number, like this:
But it is possible to use the course shortname value instead, to make things a little clearer, like this:
So in this case, we could use:
Having the course shortname in the URL in this way is more friendly 🙂

Thanks for sharing this great tip. I wish Moodle would generate these friendlier URLs by default. Would be nice if there was a way to do this for categories too.
Generation of friendly URL’s is really a server issue, not just a Moodle issue.
However, it’s something that Moodle could potentially ‘take onboard’ as a project to make URL’s more user-friendly as an accessibility issue.
