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

Instructors and collaboration site owners can add links to assignments, forums, discussion topics, and tests and quizzes so that site participants can access these items directly from a page in Lessons. By adding links to these items, instructors and site owners can control the order in which site participants can access them. For more information, see How do I ensure that lesson items are completed in a particular order?

Go to Lessons.

Select the Title of the page (e.g., Lessons, Activities, Week: 1) from the tool menu in your site.  

Select Add Content.

  1. Select Link to an assignment to add a link to an assignment in the Assignments tool.
  2. Select Link to a test or quiz to add a link to an assessment in the Tests & Quizzes tool.
  3. Select Link to a forum or topic to add a link to a forum or topic in the Discussions tool.

Items that have already been created in the chosen tool will be listed on the page. To add a link to an item that has already been created:

  1. Select the radio button to the left of the item name.
