Managing a Moodle course

A resource is an item that a teacher can use to support learning, such as a file or link. Moodle supports a range of resource types which teachers can add to their courses. In edit mode, a teacher can add resources via the 'Add an activity or resource' link. Resources appear as a single link with an icon in front of it that represents the type of resource.

Administrators can decide whether or not to force teachers to add descriptions for each resource by enabling or disabling a site-wide setting in Administration > Plugins > Activity modules > Common settings.

Managing resources in several languages

The restriction by language availability condition additional plugin makes it easy to show an English resource only to English users and an activity in French only to French speaking students. See this forum thread for an example.
