The page module enables a trainer to create a web page resource using the text editor. A page can display text, images, sound, video, web links, and embedded code, such as Google maps.

Advantages of using the page module rather than the file module include the resource being more accessible (for example to users of mobile devices) and easier to update.

For large amounts of content, it's recommended that a book is used rather than a page.

(The video above is taken from the Totara Academy course on Course resources).
