Create a link to a website

On the Course Content page, you can add a link to a website you want students to access alongside other materials. For example, you can add a link to a website with the required reading listed in your syllabus.

Select the plus sign wherever you want to add the website information. In the menu, select Create to open the Create Item panel. Select Link. You can also expand or create a folder or learning module and add the link.

In the New Link panel, type a name and optional description. If you don't add a name for the link, New Link and the date appear to students on the Course Content page. Paste or type the URL and select the globe icon to preview the website. The link is hidden from students until you decide to show it. Select the visibility to change it. Select Save when you're finished.

You can align a web link to one or multiple goals. You and your institution can use goals to measure student achievement across programs and curriculums. You need to save the link before you can align goals.

Students can't see the goals you align with a web link.

On the Course Content page, open the link's menu. Select Edit, and then select Align with goals to search for available goals to align with this item.
