You can place links in your courses that will take learners to different areas of the course. This allows you to set up different pathways through your content. You can link to the beginning of any module, lesson, activity, or assessment anywhere in your course.
To setup course navigation links, select the Navigation block.
On a course editor page, hover between two blocks and select the green plus button to add a new block.
Choose One-Column and select the Navigation Block.
This will add the Navigation block to your course page. The default is to provide two links.
In the Elements settings panel to the left, you can configure how many links. Use 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.
Now click Select a Link from with the block you added. 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.
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 required structure or progress blocks enabled in your course and your new links will take a learner past the required content, the learner will NOT allow them to proceed and will give them a warning that they must complete required content first. It is advised you do not set up links to required content before a learner would be able to complete them naturally. Use the Simulate Progress toggle in Preview mode to test this out.
