2.5 Course links

Course links

The Course Link tool provides a way of linking from one section of a Yorkshare site to another. Course links support sign-posting and leading students through content in a sequential way. They are commonly used on sites where the content could be viewed in any order, however their presence prompts users to continue looking through the different site sections.

Course links are less useful in module sites as the different site sections are typically based around weeks or topics. Therefore there is already a structure in place to support sequential viewing, and students are unlikely to want to view more than one section at a time as they focus on the work for that week only.

The video below shows an example of a VLE site containing course links compared with a site without them.
