The Moodle Database activity allows teachers and/or students to build, display, and search a bank of record entries. The available formats are very broad. Content can include images, files, URLs, numbers, and text.

See the page on the Database activity for videos and written instructions.

This activity now includes useful preset formats that make Database much easier to set up, including Image gallery, Journal, Proposals and Resources, or you can create or import your own formats.

Add a Database activity

  1. Go to your Moodle paper and toggle on Edit mode at the top right of the page.
  2. At the bottom of the relevant central section, select Add an activity or resource.
  3. Select Database.
