How do I enable the activity chooser in Moodle?

The activity chooser is a dialog box with a short description of each activity and resource. If disabled, separate resource and activity drop-down menus are provided instead. To enable the activity chooser:

  1. Click your profile menu (top right hand corner).
  2. Choose  Preferences.
  3. Click Course Preferences.
  4. Check the box to enable the activity chooser.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Once you return to your course, you should see the Add an activity or resource link.
