Module Links

Module by: Connexions. E-mail the author

Summary: This module explains how to edit the links associated with a module.

Figure 1: The "Links" tab.
Figure 1 (/content/m19610/latest/module-links-blank.png)

From the "Links" tab you can:

These links are viewable in the "Links" box that displays with each module (online view only). The featured links appear under their specified category type, for example, the supplemental links are listed under the "Supplemental" heading.

Adding New Featured Links

To add a new link to a module, use the following steps:

  1. Type the label for the link in the "Title" field (required).
  2. Click on the down arrow next to the "Type" field and select the type of link from the drop-down list (prerequisite, supplemental, or example).
  3. Click on the down arrow next to the "Strength" field and select a number from the drop-down list for the strength of the link. 5 is the strongest link. Stronger links will display with more bars next to the link title in the module's "Links" box.
  4. Identify the target of the link by typing in a module ID in the "Module ID" field, or typing a URL. You can optionally specify a version if you entered a module ID. You can provide the name of any files that you added to the module and then readers can download that file using the featured link. Be sure and include just the file name and not the full URL to it, if the file is part of your module. For example: "myword.doc".
  5. Click Add to add the link.

Editing Existing Featured Links

If the module already contains links, they will appear in the top half of the screen. To edit an existing link, use the following steps:

  1. Update the contents of the "Title" field to change the label of the link.
  2. Click on the down arrow next to the "Type" field and select another type of link from the drop-down list.
  3. Click on the down arrow next to the "Strength" field and select another number from the drop-down list for the strength of the link. 5 is the strongest link.
  4. Update the contents of the "URL" field to change the URL of the link.
  5. Click Update Links to make your changes.

Deleting a Featured Link

To delete an existing link, select the checkbox in the "Delete" column in the list of existing links. Then click Update Links to delete the link.
