Adding Section Labels

Labels are used to add text and images to course homepage. You can use labels to create headings in course sections on the main homepage, which can be an effective way to organize content. For example, if you have several links to external websites, you could use a Label to display a title in the section where they appear then group all of the website links below the label. Similarly, you could use labels to organize groups of course materials and activities. With Labels, not only can you include formatted text but also graphics, which could enhance the look of your course and help students quickly identify topics.
