Adding Course Links

This article explains how to add Course links.

You can create Course links in courses so students can easily reference certain items. Links can be created for either external resources or internal course materials.

Once you create a Course link within the Editor, the links are accessible within the Activities by students and teachers. Try linking to items students will need to access frequently, such as staff information, office hours, and course syllabus information.
