How to: manage filters to enhance module display   EASY

Filters can enhance how your module works. Below is how to turn select filters on and off in your module as well as a description of what each filter does within your module.

Note: If a filter is on but you do not have anything in your module that uses it, it is not necessary to turn it off as it will not affect how your module works.

Accessing and managing filters

  1. Go into your module, Turn editing on.
  2. Go to the Settings block > More > Module administration > Filters.
  3. There are four filters that will be set to the default (as below). To change the default for a filter select 'On' or 'Off' from the relevant drop-down box.

The Filters 

TeX notation

This allows for complex mathematical notations written in LATeX format to be converted into the appropriate mathematical expression in the module content e.g. in a label. See example below:

Multimedia plugins

You should not need to use these filters as videos should be added to Moodle via MediaSpace or Echo360 Engage.
