# Tokens

Tokens let authors and instructors customize text for different schools. Here’s an author writing an exercise:

Notice the token [custom:rival-school]. The token is replaced by different text in different contexts. For example, one of the University of Michigan’s rivals is Michigan State University. Here’s what a student at the University of Michigan might see:

A Michigan State student would see “University of Michigan” in the same place.

Tokens have 101 handy uses. For example, tell students where they can get more help:

For help with your writing, go to [custom:campus-writing-center].

University A: For help with your writing, go to the writing center in Kresge Library.

University B: For help with your writing, go to the Stevens Hall Writing Lab.

Neat, huh?
