Adding/editing links applies to any Moodle content (e.g., html pages or books), including your schedule, readings list, etc.

Steps To Add A Link

Start off by highlighting the section of text that you'd like to add/edit the link. People using screen readers will mainly rely on the linked text to give them information about the link, so do not use "click here".

Click on the link button (shown below) in the text editor


Link button


A pop-up window for your link will appear

Enter the link URL you'd like to add/edit:

i. Internal Moodle page:

ii. Or, external link:


Choose how you'd like the link to be displayed:

  • If it's an Internal Link within your Moodle course, please uncheck Open in this window
  • If it's an External Link outside your Moodle course, please check off Open in new window

ii. Or, an external link opens in a new window:


Click on Create Link to save your changes.

Lastly, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Save and display to view your new link


Steps To Edit A Link

Click somewhere in the linked text–no need to select it all–and click the link button. Editing the link is similar to creating the link, as shown above.
