Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Research Help Settings

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

The Research Help Activity connects students with librarian assistance. For instructions on adding this resource to Moodle, see Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Add Research Help.

Research Help Settings

General Settings:

Because the Research Help resource automatically creates a title and description on the main course page, instructors do NOT need to add one here. Whatever is entered in the General section will not appear to students or be saved in the settings.

Access Restriction Settings:

The resource can be restricted based upon a date, group, activity completion of another activity/resource in the course, etc.

NOTE: If more than one restriction is added, students must meet EACH of the requirements before the resource becomes available.
