About This Class

Welcome to the Adding resources section of the How to build an engaging, interactive course with Moodle 3.

This section will introduce learners to Moodle resources, and discuss when it's appropriate to add them to Moodle courses.  

Pages are used in Moodle to display one page of content.  I will show learners how to create pages, edit pages once they have been created, and elude to when to use pages and when not to! 

Following on from pages, I will discuss the features of a book, and how books differ from pages.  I will show learners how to add a book to a course page, how to add chapters and subchapters, and how to edit books once they have been created. 

The section will move on to focus on files and folders, and how to add them to the course page.  This will include showing learners how to organize folders and how to use compression to make it easier to copy folders of content to the course page. 

The final lesson within the adding resources section will show learners how to add a URL to the main course page, and explain when urls and links should be used. 

Examples of best practice will be shown to learners.  How and why pages are suitable to some learning situations will also be explained.  I will also discuss the use of Moodle as a file store vs a collection of interactive resources. 

I hope you are finding the course interesting and learning some great tips and tricks to make your Moodle courses interactive and engaging.  I’m more than happy to make myself available to learners should they have any comments or questions on the course!
