How to: create a label

Labels are lines of text (that can be formatted) which allow you to put items in context or include short pieces of information. They can include graphics which can be a way to liven up a Moodle space. You can also include links whether to external resources or other items on the Moodle page. A label is a way of breaking up the main page of your module by placing a header, informative text or a graphic on the page. It's particularly useful to scaffold learning, putting them above the resources to describe them and how to use them, or for giving simple instructions. A label is the equivalent of a text box and can be as small as one word or as large as a whole screen.
