Understanding resources and activities

As you step through the process of building your course inside of Moodle, the first question that you need to ask yourself is, do I want to add a resource or an activity to my course? Well, there is a very important distinction between the two. A resource is any piece of information that you want to present to the student. It's something that the student is just going to consume, whether it be a reading assignment, your syllabi, images, audio, video, so forth. Something that the students are just going to be able to look at, read through, in order to consume some amount of knowledge.

And activity, on the other hand, is something that you want the students to do, whether it be hand in an assignment, participate in a discussion forum, interact with a glossary, or collaboratively build a wiki. All of these are activities. So when you go through building your course, the very first thing that you need to know is am I going to add a resource or an activity? And that's the first choice that you're going to make anytime you go to post some content. Throughout the rest of this chapter we'll step through in detail each of the different primary resources that are available to you inside of your Moodle course.
