How do I add links to assignments, forums, or quizzes to a lesson page?

Instructors can add links to assignments, forums, and tests and quizzes so that students can access these items directly from the Lessons tool.

Select Add Content.

Click the Add Content + tab in the gray menu bar near the top of the page to open the Add Content menu.

Click the appropriate option to add a link to content from the Assignments tool, the Forums tool, or the Tests & Quizzes tool:

  1. Click Link to an assignment to add a link to an assignment;
  2. Click Link to a forum or topic to add a link to a forum or a forum topic;
  3. Click Link to a test or quiz to add a link to a test or quiz.

After selecting the desired tool, any items that have already been created in the tool will be listed on the page. To add a link to an item that has already been created, select the radio button to the left of the item name, then click Use selected item. 

Only published items will be available to be linked to the lesson page. Assignments and forums in draft mode, or quizzes in working copies, cannot be linked to the lesson page until they are published.

Alternatively, to create a new item in the desired tool and add a link to it on the lesson page, click Create new... 

The system will direct you to the selected tool so that you can create the new item; after the item is created, click Continue with... at the top of the page to select your new item and add the link to the lesson page.  

After the link to the item has been created, click the Edit (pencil/square) icon to the right of the link to edit the link details, including the name of the link and the link description.
