Resources that are embedded as labels in Converge are displayed right on the course page and can be easily accessed by students. For example, you can create a Class Resources module at the top of your course, and embed a Symbaloo full of links to useful online resources and videos, as shown below.
To embed an online resource as a label, start by navigating to the module where you would like to add the label. Then, click the Add button at the bottom of the module.
A new window will pop up, giving you a choice between Activities and Resources. To add a Label, you will choose Resources.
A window will now open with all of the Resources options. Click Label, and then click Add.
When the Add A New Label page opens, add any text you would like displayed alongside your online resource in the Text Box.
Next, you’ll need to add the embed code for your resource in the text box. To do this, you’ll need to visit the site where you have found or created the resource, locate and copy the embed code. It is usually found under the Share menu. For example, on Symbaloo, you click the Share button on the top of the page.
When the Share options are visible, look for the embed code for the resource. On Symbaloo, the panel below opens and you will click on Embed Code.
This will launch a new window with the code that you need to embed the resource. Copy the code by selecting it, right clicking your mouse, and choosing Copy. Alternatively, you can use CTRL + C on a Windows machine, or Command + C on a Mac.
When you return to your course, click on the Show More Buttons icon on the textbox menu bar to reveal all of the available options.
Next, click on the Edit HTML button to reveal the HTML code for the text box.
Paste the embed code by right clicking your mouse and choosing Paste. You can also use CTRL + V on a Windows machine, or Command + V on a Mac. Then, unclick the EDIT HTML button.
You should now see your resource in the text box.
Click Save and Return To Course at the bottom of this page.
You should now see your new resource label in your course. You can hover over the label to reveal your options for the label. Click the Drag icon if you’d like to relocate the label to another place in your course. You can also click the left and right arrows to move the label further left or right within your module.
