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Note: By default, all Lesson Items are unpublished. To publish an external URL, click the unpublished icon.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.
