Editing in Moodle
How to Turn Editing On; the meaning of the editing icons, including General editing icons, editing icons for Blocks, for Sections, for Activities and Resources.
The text editor (sometimes referred to as the ‘HTML Editor‘ or even ‘TinyMCE’) has many icons to assist the user in entering content. Many of these icons and functions should be familiar to anyone who uses a word processor. Some examples of where you will see the text editor include: Editing Section headings, description of an activity, writing an answer to a quiz question or editing the content of many blocks.
This block allows instructors to perform actions upon multiple resources or activities, rather than having to perform repeated actions on individual items.
