After your login you will navigate either to

  • a defined starting page e.g. author area for authors or course area for non-authors
  • an info page, a page that usually contains general information on various topics (similar to a course with info),
  • the OpenOlat portal or
  • a start page defined individually by you. Each OpenOlat page can be marked as an individual starting page.


If you cannot see the portal, it was most probably disabled by the system administrator.

In the navigation the chat is shown first. Depending on the settings in the personal menu, more elements can be shown in the navigation.


In the personal menu the areas' personal tools, configuration and system can be found. Depending on the tools selected in "System settings" certain personal tools are moved in the navigation on the top or stay in the personal menu on the right.
