Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Managing activities.

Location: Administration >> Configuration >> Modules

Your Moodle distribution comes with a standard set of modules and developers are constantly making new ones. You may add or remove modules as follows:

Module installation

  1. Download the zip file to your moodle/mod directory and unzip it there.
  2. It's always a good idea, although not essential, to get the latest English language pack, as well as the latest packs for your language. Put these in your moodle/lang directory (Moodle 1.5) and unzip them there.
  3. Some of the modules may contain their own language files, if so then just leave them there, they'll be found automatically.
  4. Visit your admin page to complete the installation.

Module removal

To remove, click on delete next to the module you wish to remove. You will then need to use a file manager to remove/delete the actual module directory from moodle/mods, otherwise Moodle will reinstall it next time you visit the admin page.
