Page resource settings

From MoodleDocs

Adding a new page to your course

  • From the the "Add an activity or resource" link (or, if not present, the "Add a resource" drop down menu), choose Page All settings may expanded by clicking the "Expand all" link top right.
  • In the "Adding a new page" screen that follows, give your page a name and a description (which may or may not be required according to admin settings)
  • Add your content to the Page content section.




Whatever you type here will form the link learners click on to view the page so it is helpful to give it a name that suggests its purpose.


Add a description of your page here. Click "Show editing tools" to display the rich text editor, and drag the bottom right of the text box out to expand it.

Display description on the course page

If this box is ticked, the description will appear on the course page just below the name of the page.



Add your page content here. You can use the features of the Text editor to add media, images, links and more.


(These settings are collapsed by default.)


Choose here whether or not to display the page description along with the page content when a user clicks on the page.

If the administrator has allowed both 'open' and 'pop-up' as display options (from Administration>Site administration>Plugins>Activity modules>Page), you will have additional display settings here.
