  2. Click the image where you want to add a marker and it will automatically appear.

  4. To reorder your markers, click Markers at the top of the sidebar to return to the markers list. Drag markers up and down to reorder the list.

Step 4: Modify Markers

There are a lot of ways you can modify your markers, from adding text to importing media.

  2. Select the marker you want to modify in the list on the left, then do any of the following:

    Add Text

    Edit (or delete) the marker's title and description in the sidebar.

    Choose a Marker Style

    In addition to numbers 0-9, there are lots of additional marker styles and icons to choose from. Select a new style for your marker from the Marker Style drop-down window.

    Add Media

    Click Media to upload an image or video, browse the Content Library 360, or embed web content (such as a YouTube video). It displays below the title text when you expand the marker.

    Add Audio

    Upload an audio file or use the Record Audio tool. You can pause, but your in-progress recording won't be saved until you click Stop Recording.
  3. When you’re finished, click Markers at the top of the sidebar to return the markers list.

Step 5: Customize the Block Settings

Click here to learn how to modify how the block itself displays.

Your image displays at medium width (1100 px wide) by default, but you can select small (760 px wide) or full width from the Image Width menu on the Settings tab. Note that we respect image ratio, so pictures that are taller than they are wide will take up a large amount of space when expanded to full width.

Tip: Add a continue block after your labeled graphic block when you want learners to complete it before moving on.
