A resource is a non-interactive content item that supports learning, such as a file or link. See M01c1 - Moodle Resource list for information on what resources can be added to a Moodle course.
To deliver information to students that explains concepts they need to understand.
Tutors and course administrators can add resources.
Students and anyone that has access to the course can view them.
Decide the most appropriate type of resource for the content you would like to deliver (See M01d1 - Moodle Resource list). You might like to experiment in a test course, so your students won't see this. If you need a test course for this purpose, please request one from Digital Education.
The UCL E-Learning Baseline suggests the following for Resources :
If you have a number of related resources and/or activities, you might like to add a label containing a heading, see below the correct heading structure to use on the page.
|Text Editor||Use heading option|
|Atto Editor||Large heading|
|TinyMCE editor||Heading 3|
*To check or change your Editor, go to the top-right corner and hover over profile your name, click on Preferences and click on Editor Preferences .
Other Edit options include:
|Move right||Move right indents the item, so you can show a hierarchy of items. Once you move right, you will also get an option to move left , so you can un-indent it.|
|Make available||Show or Hide the resource from student view.|
|Duplicate||Duplicate resources might save you some editing time for similar resources. This is ideal if you have configured the resource and would like to copy the settings to the duplicate resource. Make sure to apply changes for example, the title, file, links etc.|
|Assign Roles||Promote a student to act as a tutor on a particular resource by assigning them to the tutor role with the Assign roles option. This means they would have edit rights just for that resource and nothing else on the page.|
|Delete||Delete will prompt you if you really want to delete the resource. Click Yes to delete it.|
Further guidance on Resources is available from moodledocs.
If you find any inaccurate or missing information you can even update this yourself (it's a communal wiki).

A. Once you have added a resource you can choose to hide or show it by clicking the eye icon in the edit menu, to the right of the item. When hidden the open eye icon will change to show a closed eye.
Alternatively, when adding the resource, or editing its settings, you can choose to hide it under the 'common module settings'.
