Editing a Class
This article shows how to make changes to a class, like adding activities and resources. For a video overview of this same process, watch:
Turn Editing On
First, click on the Turn editing on button below the course Actions menu to activate the edit mode in your class. Once you've enabled editing, the button text changes to "turn editing off."
With editing on, you'll see a variety of menu links and icons that allow you to edit and change the status of content in your class. Toggle editing back off for a cleaner view of your course.
Moving an existing resource
To move a course resource within your course, just click and drag the "cross" icon to the left of the resource you want to move. Once you've moved that resource into its new location in the course outline, let go of the cross icon.
Resources and Activities
At the bottom of each content section is a link to the list of activities and resources you can add to your class.
Activities include assignments, quizzes and discussion forums, to name a few. The Activities tab of the resource window shows all your choices.
The Resources tab shows a list of course resources you can add. If you want to add a link to an external resource, such as a youtube video, you'll want to select the URL resource, for example. You can click Add at the bottom of the list when you've selected the resource or activity you want to add.
Add a file - Drag and Drop
In addition to being able to add a file by selecting the file resource from the menu of resources, you can also drag and drop the file from your computer directly to any section in your Moodle class - but remember that editing must still be on for this to work.
Drag and Drop image - Course Page or Link?
In the case of images, when dragging and dropping you are given the choice of either displaying the image directly in a section on the course page, or just placing a link to the image file in the selected section.
When you are done editing your class, you can Turn editing off, but remember to turn it back on next time you need to make a change!
