Moodle 2

Adding a URL

FirefoxFirefox is the best browser to use when accessing Moodle 2. Free download: http://www.mozilla.org

The URL module enables a teacher to provide a web link as a course resource.

Anything that is freely available online, such as documents or images, can be linked to; the URL doesn’t have to be the home page of a website. The URL of a particular web page may be copied and pasted or a teacher can use the file picker and choose a link from a repository such as Flickr, YouTube or Wikimedia (depending upon which repositories are enabled for the site).

There are a number of display options for the URL, such as embedded or opening in a new window and advanced options for passing information, such as a student's name, to the URL if required.
