In Moodle's Editor, the "Embedded Files" toolbar icon allows you to add, remove, or download files which can be used in any resource or activity in your course. By uploading files into your course this way, you're using Moodle's File Manager to store a file once that you can create links to again and again, without needing to re-upload the file each time you want your Students to see it.
