About Text block

A Text block is used to add text or images on a module. You can use this block to add contact details for the module teaching team.

This block is very flexible and can be used for a variety of other purposes. It uses the standard Moodle text editor for formatting text, adding images or creating links. You can switch to code view to enter valid HTML markup. This enables embedding of video, audio and other files which can add unique elements to a module page.
