Content Link: How do I add links on a page/folder to specific items within a tool?
Add Content Link
The Add Content Link feature allows you to link to any item that appears in the course. You can also create and link to items all at once via this feature. For example, you can place a link in your Week 3 folder to a discussion topic or quiz next to a link to a reading.
Role(s) Needed: These instructions apply to Section-level Designers.
Note: Make sure the tool for the item you wish to link to is added to your course. To add tools, from the Build or Teach tab, click Manage Course on the Designer Tools (Build) or Instructor Tools (Teach) menu. Then, select Tools. Check off the tools you want to add, and they will appear in the Course Tools menu and in the Add Content Link list.
Step 1: Click on the Build tab.
Step 2: Decide where to place the content link in your course:
The top-level page, or folder, is Home:
To create a sub-folder to place the link into, click the Create Folder... button, title it, and save it. Click on the folder link to go into that folder.
- To create a Learning Module to place the file into, see the folder Learning Modules in this knowledge base for details on creating and working with this method of organizing course content.
Step 3: Click the Add Content Link button
Step 4: Select the tool containing the item you wish to link to.
Step 5: If the item already exists, click on it in Select from inventory, then click Add Selected.
If the item does not yet exist, click the Create button. The process for creating that item is described in the folder for that item's name in this knowledge base.
A link to the item is placed on the Home page, sub-folder, or Learning Module.
TIP: To link the same content item to multiple places in the same course, repeat the above process using the Add Content Link button.
