How Do I Add an External URL as a Lesson Item?

You can add a URL link to your Lessons.

Note: URLs will open in a new tab or window, depending on the user’s browser.


Open Lessons


Once you have a Course selected in the Courses and Groups dropdown menu, click the Lessons link in the Course Navigation bar.


Add Content


Click the Add Item button.


Add External URL


Under the Curve Resources heading, select the URL option.


Edit Information


Type or paste the URL in the URL field [1]. Give your External URL a Page Name [2]. Click the Save button to add the item to the Lesson [3].

Note: By default, all Lesson Items are unpublished. To publish an external URL, click the unpublished icon. The hover text will confirm you want to publish the external URL.

Note: When adding an External URL to a Lesson, Curve will display the page to students outside of Curve. If the External URL is part of a Lesson requirement, Curve will also register the progression so that the Lesson footer will appear and allow the student to advance to the next Lesson item.
