The page activity can be used to create web page resources using a text editor. Pages can incorporate various elements such as text, images, sound, video, web links, and embedded code like Google maps. Compared to the file activity, using the page activity offers advantages such as increased accessibility for users, including those on mobile devices, and easier updating of content. Pages are commonly used for presenting course terms and conditions, offering a summary of the course content, or embedding multiple videos or sound files with accompanying explanatory text.
