Moodle editing icons

Step by step

Navigate to your module (course) and click the Turn editing on button (top right).

A number of icons will appear all over the page.

While this can at first appear overwhelming, the icons are the same few repeated, so they will soon become simple to understand and use. 

  • To edit the name/title of a resource or activity, click the edit icon (pencil) at the end of the name of the item
  • To move an item, click and hold the + icon at the left of the name of the item and drag it to where you want it.
  • Click the Edit button at the end of the line to drop down an edit menu to access other editing functions
