Adding Course Links to Weekly Folders

Course links” are a specific type of link that will lead to another area within the course—as opposed to a web link, which takes students outside the course. Adding a course link to the weekly folders in your course can be useful for directing your students to a particular location, such as a discussion board or groups page in Bb LEARN.


  1. Navigate to the unit folder where the link should appear
  2. Click on the Build Content button and choose Course Link:
    Course link tool
  3. On the “Create Course Link” page, click the Browse button. This will open a popup window with a list of the course areas that can be linked.
  4. Locate and click on the item that the link should point to, such as another folder in the course or a discussion forum:

  5. Add a description if needed, and set the Standard Options (such as availability) if you would like to use them
  6. Once you are satisfied with the options selected, click the Submit button. The course link will appear at the bottom of the list in the folder you selected.

Remember: Items in folders can be reorganized by hovering over the far left edge of the item and waiting for the cursor to turn into a crosshair. Once the crosshair appears, click and drag to rearrange the items on the page.
