What is a Label?
A label serves as a spacer on a Moodle course page.It can be used to add text,images, multimedia or code in between other resources in the different sections. It is a very versatile resource and can help to improve the appearance of a course if used thoughtfully. Banners or descriptions may be added to labels to distinguish between and highlight different areas. (Note that excessive use of multimedia (sound,video) in labels can slow down the loading of a course page.)
How is it set up?
- In a course, with the editing turned on, choose Label from the activity chooser.
- In the text box, add your text, images, sound or video files as desired. If you use the Atto editor, you can drag and drop these directly into the label.
- Expand the other settings to specify what you require and then click Save and return to course.
How does it work?
What students see in the Label depends on how the teacher has configured it. Labels display as a part of the course page, so there is no icon to click on. Note that Labels can only have manual activity completion.
If teachers have set access restrictions on the Label, these will display to the teacher. Labels are useful when gamifying your Moodle course, for example by revealing an image in a label only when a previous activity was completed.
