titleFurther help

Further guidance on core Moodle Activities is available from moodledocs. Note: some activities will not be listed on this page, as they are plugins that have been installed on UCL Moodle. You may search for these separately, as guidance will still likely be available on moodledocs.

If you find any inaccurate or missing information you can even update this yourself (it's a communal wiki).

If you have a specific question about the tool please contact the Digital Education team.
