Using the Activity Chooser

To add an activity or a resource to your course:

  • Locate the Administration block within the course and click on the Turn editing on link
  • In the Topic area, click Add an activity or resource (as below)



  • The Activity chooser appears in a pop up window (as below)

 

A list of available activities and resources are listed on the left hand side of the activity chooser.  Clicking on to a specific activity or resource will cause the relevant help file to be displayed on the right hand side.

 

Without the Activity Chooser

Older courses may not have the activity chooser enabled by default (as it's a relatively new feature). Alternatively, you may simply prefer not to sue it (and may have disabled this feature).

To add an activity or resource to a course that doesn't use the activity chooser:

  • Locate the Administration block within the course and click on the Turn editing on link
  • In the Topic area, click either the Add a resource or Add an activity drop down list

Resources tend to be for the delivery of static content whilst activities generally encourage student interaction of some description

The benefit of the activity chooser over the more traditional approach is that it presents the Moodle teacher to compare different tools, reviewing the help files from one location.

 

Enabling/Disabling the Activity Chooser

  • From within your course, locate the [admini
    • If you want to enable the activity chooser, click the Activity chooser on link
    • If you want to disable the activity chooser, click the Activity chooser off link
