For those who have difficulty using a standard mouse or keyboard, Moodle accommodates alternative input devices like touchscreens, switch interfaces, or head pointers. To provide further customization options, users can disable AJAX and JavaScript if these features conflict with their assistive technologies or personal preferences.

    Here are the common roles involved in creating and editing activities in Moodle:

    1. Course Creator

    2. Teacher/Instructor

  • How do I edit things?

    The ability to edit things is dependent on the user's permissions. Generally, regular users like students have limited editing capabilities. Once logged in, find the course you want to edit and access it. Look for an "Edit" or "Turn editing on" button within the course page and click on it to enable editing mode. Now you can locate the specific item you want to edit, such as an activity or resource. Look for an editing icon or pencil icon next to it and click on it. This will allow you to modify the item's name, description, settings, or content. Make the desired changes and remember to save them. After saving, review the edited item to ensure everything looks as intended. If satisfied, you can exit editing mode by clicking the "Edit" or "Turn editing off" button. That's it! You have successfully edited an item in Moodle.
