Adding Resources

A resource is an item that you can use to support learning, such as a file or link.

To add a resource you have to turn the editing mode on first, and then select one of the resource types from the "Add an activity or resource" link.

Here is a descriptive list of the available resources:

  • Book - Multi-page resources with a book-like format. 
  • File - A picture, a pdf document, a spreadsheet, a sound file, a video file.
  • Folder - For helping organize files and one folder may contain other folders.
  • Label - Can be a few displayed words or an image used to separate resources and activities in a topic section, or can be a lengthy description or instructions.
  • Page - The student sees a single, scrollable screen that a teacher creates with the robust HTML editor
  • URL - You can send the student to any website or web resource external to Moodle.
