Once you feel confident with using a webpage, you can also add images and multimedia.  You will need to edit the page if you are adding this to an existing page.

Editing a page

  • View your page and then find the settings block on your screen (usually on the left hand side or docked on the left but it could be anywhere)!
  • Click on edit settings and you will go to the editing screen for the page.

Adding images

  • If you want to add a picture, click on the 'insert image' icon (image of a tree and shown with arrow moving from it in the image below).
  • A new box will open (as shown).
  • Click on Find or upload an image
  • You get the choice of a range of places to get an image from. Choose the relevant place and find the image you want by selecting on each screen. (Take a look at the file storage in Moodle 2 resource for an overview of the all the places where you can get resources from).

    • Type in an image description. This is the text that will be shown if the image cannot be loaded or if the content of the screen is being read out loud for visually impaired users.
    • Click on insert
  • You can choose image repositories, such as Flickr, to be available when adding images.  Ask your Online course administrator if you want to know more!
