Overview of the popular resource types that you can create to present content to students.

About Page (webpage)

The Page resource enables lecturers to create a webpage resource using the text editor. A page can display text, images, sound, video, web links and embedded code, such as Google maps. It is much easier to update a Page resource rather than a file. You can use a page to:

  • present a concept to students.
  • present a summary of the module.
  • embed several videos or sound files together with some explanation.

For large amounts of content, we recommend you use a Book which is easier for students to navigate.

Opening Notepad

  • In the Windows search box, type Notepad, and then, in the list of results, select Notepad.
