I don't see the distinction between an activity and a resource, because, at least for me, the resources are the activities.  Yes, it's a Moodle terminology thing really. In Moodle, Resources are static (passive)  - the learner reads, watches, listens to them, whereas they engage in Activities. It depends on what kind of teacher you are or how you want to teach your learners, whether you use more resources or activities (using Moodle's terminology) Giving them videos to watch (embedded in pages or labels) is a resource because although they are doing something - watching the video - they are passive. Submitting, reviewing and assessing their peers' work in a workshop activity is an activity because they are typing/swiping/engaging with the task.
