Click on the Gear menu (cog icon, top-right), and select Turn editing on.
In the section (i.e. week or topic) of your course where you want to add the item, click on Add an activity or resource.
Select the activity or resource you wish to add from the list. A summary description will appear in the right column with the features for that activity or resource, and often a link to More help in the Moodle docs.
Shortcut for files- Images and documents can also be added directly onto the main course page by dragging and dropping the files directly into the relevant course section.
Click the Add button and work through the options in the form. There is help throughout the form – click on the question mark icons for further information.
Some items which appear for most resources and activities include:
- Common module settings- Use this option to hide or display this item. This can also be managed in the Edit menu located to the right of each item on the main course page.
- Restrict access- This section can be used to reveal items e.g.: on a particular date; to specific groups of students; based on specific criteria such as passing a quiz or submitting an assignment.
- Completion tracking- If you have turned on completion tracking for your course, use this to determine how students get a tick (i.e. are marked complete) for this item. As of Dec 2018, lecturers can manually override course completion items for individual students.
