Using the Moodle URL Resource

A URL allows you to add a web link to items available online, such as web pages, images, and (perhaps most importantly) your Google docs.

Step 1: From within your course in Moodle, click on Course management and select Turn editing on.

Step 2: In the topic area you’d like to add a URL to, click the Add an activity or resource link at the bottom.

Step 3: Select URL and then click the Add button at the bottom.

Step 4: Enter a Name in the text areas provided.

Step 5: Paste or enter the External URL in the box provided.
Step 6: Under Appearance, using the Display drop down menu, select how you would like the link to open, such as in a new window, a pop-up, or embedded.
Step 7: When finished, click the Save and return to course button at the bottom.
