The usual way to edit or create text that is part of the visual content of a course is using the Text editor (also known as the HTML editor).
- A teacher will see many (“edit settings”) icons on a course’s home page when “Turn editing on” button has been clicked. Or they will see the HTML editor and content area within many activities and resources. For example, a teacher can edit the text that appears at the top of a section in a course by clicking on the edit hand icon.
- A student and a teacher will see the HTML tool when they reply to a forum post but will not have the ability of changing a topic heading in the course.

Text editing on a Moodle site
Teachers and administrators should be aware that the Moodle code contains “strings” of text that can be edited though customising the language on a site wide basis.
