A label is first and foremost a spacer for information on Moodle. You can use it to label a section in a week on your course. Say you have multiple videos you want your students to watch, you can use a label and title it Required Videos to Watch and then place all videos beneath this label.

The settings will open up like this:The image shows the advanced text editor.
  5. Once you have the label all set up, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Save and Return to Course
  6. You’ll be taken back to your course homepage and the week you were editing in. The label you just made will be at the bottom of that week.
