Add a label

A label acts as a spacer between other resources or activities on the course page. Labels are versatile and can be used to embed text, images, tables and multimedia directly onto the course page. Use a label to:

  • Split up a long list of activities with a sub-heading or an image.
  • Add a short description or instructions for students to a course section.
  • Improve the appearance of a course.

Labels are not pages. Labels are suited to small amounts of text and individual media files that need to appear on the main course page. More than this may introduce a cluttered feel, make the space difficult to navigate, and slow down the loading of the course page.

If you have a lot of information that you would like to structure and display within a single activity, use Pages, and for larger quantities again, use a Book.
