Please note: Documentation is in progress for this article. Please check back periodically for updated information.

General Information

Activities & Resources in Moodle are the tools and features that you can add to your course as content resources, practice activities, and measurable assessments. The LSU Moodle site contains a list of standard Moodle activities and resources plus additional plug-ins added by the administrator. To add an activity or resource, click "Create learning activity" at the bottom of the section. To read more about each item, click the "Help guide" tab.

By default, all activities and resources are shown together in one list. It is possible to favorite an activity by selecting the star icon next to the activity button. They can be filtered through tabs to show only activities, only resources, only favorites, or even recommended activities set by the administrator.

An activity is something students can contribute to directly and is usually measurable or grade-eligible. Click on each activity in the list to learn more.

* Contact the Faculty Technology Center  for SCORM SUPPORT.
