These are the interactive parts of your course, and allow students (and teachers) to do things.
To add a new activity to your course you must first turn editing on
Note: There are now two methods for adding activities and resources to course pages, you may either use the traditional Add activity or resource link or the new Activity chooser.
Check the Administration block to see if you have the Activity chooser turned on or off. You may turn the chooser on or off by clicking on the entry within the Administration block.
Note: To use this method the Activity chooser must be turned off
The Add an activity or resource window will appear. Select the type of activity you wish to add and click the Add button, otherwise click Cancel to return to your course page.
Note: To use this method the Activity chooser must be turned on
When enabled the Activity chooser replaces the Add activity or resource link described above with two drop down boxes one for resources and one for activities.
Scroll to the bottom of the section where you wish to add the activity and click the Add and activity drop down menu. Click on the activity type you wish to add from the list that appears.
This page describes the process of adding activities to your course page, however, the process of adding resources is essentially the same.
