The format of your course determines some of the look and organizational options of the main page of your course.
By default, courses are created with the Flexible Sections format. In this format, you have the most flexibility in determining the organization of your course. You can add subsections to sort subtopics beneath your main topics, and click the sections of your course open and closed, as well as choosing a current section to highlight for your students. You can find more information about the Flexible sections format here: Flexible Sections course format | Moodle.org

Renaming Items: To rename an item, first turn on editing in the upper left corner, and use the pencil item to the right of the title of the item to rename it. You may occasionally have to explicitly save your changes, depending on what you are editing.
Hiding Items: To hide an item, first turn on editing in the upper left corner. Click on "Edit" to the right of the title of the item, and choose "Hide" from the dropdown menu. The title of the item will be colored a lighter grey, and you'll see a label that says "Hidden from Students".

To set up an access restriction, first turn on editing in the upper left corner. Click on "Edit" to the right of the title of the item, then choose "Edit Settings" from the dropdown menu. On the settings page, scroll down to the "Restrict Access" section, and use the "Add Restriction" prompt to set up the appropriate conditions.
