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
- Collapsed text
- Course teaser
- Topic teaser
Copy all files into the folder mod/unilabel inside your moodle installation. Run the installation process in moodle. You can find more detailes to the installation process here: https://docs.moodle.org/35/en/Installing_plugins#Installing_a_plugin
The configuration consists of two steps (except the Simple text type).
