It is possible to make a beautiful horizontal rule in Moodle.
Here is an example which you can add to your own course by clicking the < > button and pasting the following code.
<hr style="height:8px; color:##800000; background-color:#800000;" width="75%">
The horizontal rule is a great way to separate resources and activities into manageable chunks, display subtopics in sections.
