Creating a Web Page in Moodle

Here are the steps you need to follow to create a web page in Moodle:

  1. Log into your course and select “turn editing on” which is found near the top right corner of your course. (See example below.)
    editting on
  2. In the topic or week in which you would like to create a new resource, open "Add a Resource" and choose "Page".
  3. In the next screen, enter the Name and Description for your new page.
    (The Name is what students will see on your course outline page.)
    • e.g.
      Name: "Welcome Page for New Students"
      Description: [ This description is required by Moodle. ]
  4. You can also use the HTML icon on the editor's toolbar to enter HTML code:enter html code
  5. After you have decided what text to include in your page, use the "Window" section of the page to determine how the link will open. It is customary to use a "New Window". Feel free to experiment with navigation blocks, window size, etc. The best practice is to maintain consistency in your course by ensuring that similar links (ie. web pages) open the same way, and contain the same window features. attributes
  6. Once done, save your changes by clicking the "Save Changes" button at the page.
  7. A test page will open showing you how the page will look when a student opens the link. If you wish to edit the page, use the "Backspace Key" to go back to your web page.
