There are two ways to add files to your Moodle course site.

Dragging and dropping files

Moodle allows you to drag files from your computer directly to your course page.

  1. Click the [Turn editing on] button on the top right corner of your course page.
  2. Locate on your device the file or files you want to add, then drag them into a topic block.
  3. Be sure you see “Add file(s) here” on the topic block before releasing.

Adding a file from the interface

If you want to add a file to your course page, you could simply drag-and-drop it there. However, you may want to add a file manually to configure additional options such as a custom name or description.

  1. Click the [Turn editing on] button in the top right corner of your course page.
  2. Hover over a topic block then click Add an activity or resource.
  3. Select File option under Resources and click the [Add] button (or simply click File).

  6. Click the [Choose file] button to select the file.
  7. Click the [Upload this file] button.
  8. Click the [Save and return to course] button.
