You can add navigation links that will take students to a different part of the course when selected. This allows you to set up non-linear learning and allows students to easily skip to other sections of the course for review. You can link to the beginning of any module, lesson, activity, or assessment anywhere in your course (you cannot yet set anchor links in the middle of the page).
To setup course navigation links, select the new Navigation block.
1 - On a course editor page, hit the green plus button to add a new block and choose One Column.
2 - Select the Navigation Block.
3 - This will add the Navigation block to your course page. The default is to provide two links.
4 - In the Elements settings panel to the left, you can configure how many links. Hit the “X” on a link to remove it, or select Add Navigation Link to add more. You can have a minimum of one link and a maximum of four.
5 - Now click Select a Link. A window will open allowing you to select any other module, lesson, activity, or assessment page in your course. You can also filter this window by the type of section you would like to choose from. Note that all links point to the beginning of the chosen section (cannot link to an anchor in the middle of a page).
6 - Once your links have been assigned, they will appear as linked navigation buttons on the page similar to the examples below. When the user clicks on a linked navigation button, it will take them directly to the top of that course page. When the user selects a specific link, it will highlight in a bold color like “Culture and Communication” in the image below.
Example of two links:
Example of one link:
Example of four links:
NOTE: If you have course mastery settings enabled in your course (required structure or progress blocks) and your new links will take a student past the required content, it will NOT allow them to proceed and will give them a warning that they must complete all required content first. It is advised you do not set up links to required content before a student would be able to complete them naturally. Use the Simulate Progress toggle in Preview mode to test this out.
