Atto (default) editor
By default, the editor Moodle gives you to edit text is a Moodle-specific editor called Atto. Most features of Atto are familiar from basic word processing. A few operations, however, are a little less self-explanatory.
Showing all the editing buttons
When you start up Atto, you get a toolbar with one row of the most frequently-used editing buttons. Clicking the button (leftmost on that row) will give you a second row of buttons.
Adding an image to your text
You can insert an image into your text using the button. This gives you a dialog box from which you can insert an image (the Moodle documentation has instructions).
