The following table provides details for the config settings available for the widget.
To create content for the Welcome Window widget, a module must be created along with the content topics to be used. moduleTitle is the name of the module the widget will grab its content from.
Note: The default module title used is “Welcome” and supports automatic language switching of English, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. If the language for a course is set to any of these localizations, the widget will use the translated word “Welcome” to locate the proper module. If moduleTitle is set to a custom string, then what is set in the config file for moduleTitle is used without the support of automatic switching of alternative languages.
moduleTitle does not have to match the name of the module entirely and can use keywords that exist in the module title. For example, you can use “Welcome” or “Welcome to…” in the module’s title and it would still be able to identify which module to use.
