The External Link module lets you add or embed a link to an external source into your course. This can be used to send your learners to another site, or have the content appear inside your course without needing to navigate to another site including forms, Google documents, or online content.

Step 1: Click on a course card on the main 'Courses' screen

Step 2: Click on the 'Modules' tab

Step 3: Click the 'Add new module" and select the 'External link' option

Note: If you're having trouble getting your link to display correctly check that your URL starts with "https://" in lieu of "http://". You will also need to ensure that whatever you are embedding is able to embed into Coassemble. You can add "https://yourworkspace.coassemble.com" to the list of accepted embed locations to make sure that it works correctly.
