The Moodle plugin "mod_unilabel" enables you to include some nice formated text on the course- or frontpage.
There are 5 different content types included (extendable sub plugins):

  • Simple text
  • Carousel
  • Collapsed text
  • Course teaser
  • Topic teaser

Usage

The configuration consists of two steps (except the "Simple text" type).
  1. The creation of a new instance by using the activity chooser.
  2. The configuration of the content depending on the content type you chose in the first step.

Description of the content types

Simple text
This content type just show the label as you already know
Carousel
In this content type you can define a series of images.
Each image is shown in a slide show.
You can also define a caption to each image that is show inside the slide item.
For each image you can define a url what makes the image to a clickable button.
The carousel is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assigne a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
Grid
In this content type you can define a series of images and contents/urls.
The grid is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
You can set a column count for the grid to define how many tiles are shown in one row.
On smaller screens the column count is reduced by a half of the defined count.
On mobile devices like cellphones only one column is shown.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assign a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
If you have defined a content for a slide the content is shown as a modal dialog if you click the slide.
If you have defined a url for a slide on click the url is loaded.
Collapsed text
This content type offers you two options:
  1. a folded content
  2. a modal dialog containing the content.
Both types can be used with or without animation
Course teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the titles and images of selected courses.
The presentation can be a carousel or a grid.
Each Item is a clickable button that brings the user to the related course.
Topic teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the description of topics of a selected course.
The topics will be shown as carousel or as grid.
If you click on such a shown topic a modal dialog shows the topic content.

    Hi Birgit, thank you for using this plugin and giving feedback smile.
    Currently the topic teaser in grid mode shows 3 tiles on large devices and on smaller devices 2 and on smallest devices 1 tile in a row.
    The content the unilable shows comes from the topic description. So I have no influence to that. But you can change the way the image is inserted into your topic description.
    Go into the html mode of the editor. You will see the image tag '...'. Add the img-fluid class into that image tag: html>

    That plugin seems very useful, thanks !
    Do you think that it would be possible to add an option to display the course description under each course with the course teaser type ? I feel like sometimes just the course title is not enough informations.

    Hi Andreas,
    I like the unilabel plugin. It's very nice! Do you have the idea to use unilabel with the mobile Moodle app?

    Hi Ralf,
    I am working on that. But there no hope of a quick solution. Currently, the moodle app does not support third-party labels sad.

    Hi Andreas,

    I'm running into the issue that the button to edit the contents of a unilabel does not appear. Instead, it only reads "Kein Inhalt" or probably "no content" in English after creating a unilabel. Is that a bug or did I configure something incorrectly?
    I checked all the settings and I just can't figure out why I can't edit it ...

    Hi Christian,

    thanks for the question! Unfortunately, this place is more suitable for general questions in which other users are also interested. Could you be so kind and ask your question in the "General plugins" forum (https://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=44)?
    Thank you for your understanding!

    Best regards
    Andreas

    Hi Andreas,
    I like the unilabel plugin too. It's very nice! Do you have further information about the idea to use unilabel with the mobile Moodle app? Is there any progress you can talk about?

    Hi Detlef,
    unfortunately, there is no progress on this matter. Since this plugin is not a real activity but a label, things are very complicated. And currently I don't have much time sad.
    Best regards

    I love the carousel on this - perfect for showing panelists taking part in a workshop. However when I upload images, I cannot reuse them? They don't appear anywhere in the repositories? I have many of the same people taking part in workshops - is there any way to access images uploaded into Unilabel slides (drag-and-drop).

    this plugin does not work for me on version 3.9 as an administrator it does but as a student or a teacher the hyper link does not when i inspect the code for some reason the hyper link is placed outside of the button unlike in admin mode. Anybody has the same problem or a solution?
