How do I select what kind of content I want to add to my course?

Valid for Moodle 2.5.  Updated on 7/31/2013.

There are two methods for selecting content to add. You can switch between methods when editing is turned on by going to the Administrative block and clicking on the option Activity chooser on or Activity chooser off.

Pull-down menus (Activity chooser off)

With this method, once you've turned editing on for a course using either the button in the upper right of the option in the Administrative block, each section will have two pull-down menus, one for resources and the other for activities. Simply pull down the appropriate menu and select the type of content you want to add.

 

Activity chooser

With this method you have a single link at the bottom of each section.

Clicking  on link brings up an interface that allows you select the type of content to add by clicking on the appropriate radio button and then the Submit button.

See the help pages on Resources or Activities for details about adding specific types of content.
