Create a Page resource

This guide describes what the Page resource in Moodle is, how it can be used, and how it is created.

The Page resource is essentially a web page within Moodle. It can be used to display various types of content and multimedia such as text, images, audio, video, embedded code or a combination of all these.

For large amounts of content, a Book is more suitable than a Page.

The Page resource is more accessible than simply uploading a file, for example to users of mobile devices. Pages are also easier to update.
  1. Click Add an activity or resource.
  2. Choose Page from the Resources list.
  3. Give the Page a Name.
  4. Give the page a Description and choose whether to Display on the course page.
  5. Create the Page contents in the Page content box. This can include text, images, other multimedia and embedded content such as YouTube. You can switch to HTML to paste embed codes using the </> icon.
    • Feel free to use a pre-defined template to improve the appearance of your page. Templates are available by clicking on the Templates4U icon (the clipboard icon).
  6. Scroll to the bottom and click Save and display or Save and return to course.
