Managing Course Resources
They are generally more one-directional than activities meaning a student will review the content but isn't required to do anything in Moodle other than to review the material. Resources are available to teachers from the course landing page when editing is turned on.
Resources and activities are added the same way (by clicking on the "Add and activity or resource" text option).
The list of Activities and Resources available are listed below.
For any Activity or Resource type, click on the radio button to the left of the name and a description will display on the right with additional details of the selected activity type.
