Did you know that you can add new navigation item to your Course menu? This is great if you want to surface an external link to all students in a systematic way.

For example, let’s say you wanted to add a link for the Library catalogue to your course navigation menu:

  • Click on Settings.
  • Click on the Apps tab.
  • Click on the Redirect tool.

  • Click on + Add app.
  • Enter a title and the url you wish to link to and use the check boxes to select where you want the item to appear.

  • Click on Add App.
  • If the item doesn’t automatically appear in your Course navigation menu refresh your browser.

Removing the redirect link

To remove the Redirect link from your course menu:

  • Click on Settings in the course navigation menu.
  • Click on the Navigation tab.
  • Either drag the item to the bottom of the page to hide it from students or click on the ellipsis and select Disable.
  • Remember to click Save.
