Labels help to structure your topic, and can also create a sense of hierarchy (depending on heading levels and position). They can be used as a scaffolding and/or navigation tool. They are particularly useful if a topic has lots of content.
The label tool enables text and multimedia to be inserted into the topic (module, page) in between links to other resources and activities. Labels are very versatile and can help to improve the appearance of a topic if used thoughtfully.
Labels may be used:
to split up a long list of activities with a subheading or an image
to add a short description to a topic module
to show the order of activities (e.g. 'Before you attend the workshop', 'After you attend the workshop' etc).
