Course editors (managers, instructors, etc.) are able to add Activities and Resources to a CLE course. Activities and Resources are a fundamental part of any CLE course; there are nearly 40 Activities and Resources to choose from when creating a new CLE course or updating an existing one.
Add an Activity or Resource
- Navigate to the course you are editing
- From the gear icon at the top right, Turning Editing On
- Go to the proper section and click Add an activity or resource
- A page will open up with three tabs: All, Activities, and Resources. Create a "favorites" tab, Starred, by clicking the star below any activity or resource. It is recommended to star any activities or resources that are often used.
- Select the activity or resource you are adding - this will open another page where you can configure the activity or resource as needed.
- Click Save and display or Save and return to course to finish.

Provide access to a resource that is hidden from students
Sometimes you may need to keep a resource hidden from students but still allow them to have access to it. For example, you may want to provide a link to a CLE page without it showing up on the CLE home page. To provide access to the resource follow the instructions below:
1. Log on to CLE, locate your course site, and turn editing on.
2. Locate the resource that you want students to have access to. Using the drop down menu select "edit settings".
3. On the next screen, stroll down the page until you locate "common moodle settings". Using the drop down menu across from availability select "make available but not shown on course page" , then save.
