Add course content as a label

Article Summary

Labels can be used to add descriptive and multimedia content to your courses to improve the flow and provide context.

Adding a label

You can add a label by following these steps:

  1. Click the Turn editing on button.
  2. Select Insert a label from the Add a resource menu.
  3. Create your label.
  4. Select whether to make your label visible by selecting Show or Hide from the Visible menu.
  5. Configure the common module settings if required.
  6. Configure the restricted access settings if required.
  7. Configure the activity completion settings if required.
  8. Enter tags if required.
  9. After you have created your label, click Save changes.

If you want to use a label to identify a grouping of resources and activities within a section, you can indent the links under the label using the arrows adjacent to each resource or activity link. This gives your grouping some visual separation from the rest of the content.

Dragging and dropping content

If dragging and dropping of media is enabled in the plugin settings, then when any media is added to the course in this way Totara will ask if you wish to add it as a file or Add media to course page, this option will add the content as a label. 

Adding an image to a page

You can also go to Experimental features and enable dragging and dropping of text and links onto a course page. As with drag and drop for media, when text is dropped on the page Totara will offer to add it to the course as a label.
