The editor


Text based communication can be a very limited form of expression. Some things are simply better said face to face. Though text will never be a replacement for face to face interaction, you can do a better job of getting your message across by using text formatting. For example, you can use bold or italic for emphasis, colour changes to show clear difference,

  • bullet points
  • and
  1. numbering
  2. to communicate
  3. order and hierarchy.

The Moodle editor provides text formatting and many more features that help you form clear and concise messages.

The various features of the editor are best learned through experimentation. Try adding a post to your favourite forum and see what you can do.
