Keep in mind...
Hyperlinking text in an activity description is a great way to direct students to important information related to completing that activity. You may hyperlink specific text within the description or simply include the link in its URL version.
How to hyperlink text:
1. Navigate to the Activities tab on the left-side toolbar and find the activity you want to edit. Click the arrow in the top-right corner of the activity and select Edit just below that arrow.
2. Add the text you want to hyperlink in square brackets [example text] and the web link in parentheses (don't forget to include the https://) directly following the last square bracket (without spaces).
[text to hyperlink](https://www.exampleweblink.com)
*To hyperlink an email address, use the format [text to hyperlink](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. Once finished, select Save Edit.
4. Review the description to ensure the text is linked and will take the student to the appropriate page.
If you prefer not to hyperlink text, you can paste the link directly into the description; it will automatically hyperlink once you save the activity.
