How to add a Label to a unit

  1. Navigate to your unit from within LEO.screenshot of the LEO activity picker, with Label highlighted
  2. Click 'Turn editing on'.
  3. Scroll down to the section in your Moodle site you would like to add the Book, then click on ‘Add an activity or resource’. From the options given under the ‘RESOURCES’ heading select ‘Label’ and then click on ‘Add’. In the new page that opens up you will be able to edit the settings for your Label.

    NOTE: Clicking on any of the section heading on the Settings page will expand that section, allowing you to edit the Settings as appropriate.  Alternatively, you can click on ‘Expand all' sections. a screenshot of the 'Expand all' option, with a red arrow pointing to it. Clicking this button will expand all of the Settings options.
  4. Unlike any other LEO tool or resource, you do not have to enter content into the 'Label text' field. If you don't enter content, and click 'Save and return to unit', then your Label will function as a 'spacer', providing a blank space in the area in which you have placed it. Otherwise, add content to your LEO unit as appropriate.
  5. Once you have selected your settings as appropriate, click ‘Save and return to unit’.

There are no settings which are specific to the Label within LEO. Functionalities available to you from the Settings page include the ability to:

  • 'Hide' and 'Show' your Label to your students.
  • The ability to add access restrictions to your Label, based on Activity completion, Grade, or other criteria selected by you.
  • Enable and disable activity completion. For example, you can require your students to manually mark the Label to acknowledge they have viewed or read it.

Moodle Tip: Course Design Strategy

In this video, the author demonstrates how to add activities and content to 'hidden' sections of your LEO unit, which can then be linked to in Labels. In the given example, the same Quiz activity is linked to multiple times within the same LEO unit in a Label which has been added to every section (as opposed to adding a new Quiz to every section).

While the interface shown in this video is now quite dated, the same principles still apply.
