Note for Contributors: This page should explain the general procedure of adding resources and activities to a course


Moodle supports a range of different resource types that allow you to insert almost any kind of web content into your courses.

To add a resource or an activity to the course:

  • log in to your Moodle site
  • go to the desired course
  • ensure editing is turned on
  • go to the topic / week where you would like the new resource or activity to be placed
  • select either the 'Add a resource...' or 'Add an activity...' menu
  • select the appropriate option from the pull down list

See Add Activity To Course for screenshots.
