Add Text and Media (formerly Label) to the Moodle Course Page


Teachers use the Text and Media area (formerly Label) resource tool to display information on the Moodle course page. This displays information to students from the topics areas on the main Moodle course page. This varies from the Page tool which creates a space similar to a webpage that Teachers can use to display content when students click to view the page.

This Guide Will Help You to:

  • Locate the Text and Media area tool.
  • Add it to the Course Page.
  • Add text, images, hyperlinks and more.
