  6. To make changes at the course site you will need to "Turn editing on." This is a button at the top right of the course page. When you are finished making changes, be sure and turn editing off to see the pages as others see them.
  7. When you turn editing on some new links will appear on the page allowing you to add activities and resources and to edit everything on the page. Also, some icons will appear at various places throughout the Moodle site. If you hover over an icon, information pops up telling you what the icon does. These icons are also described in the next wiki.
