Sharing Links with Deferred Deeplinks

How to send a link or a QR code to your learners to direct them to a specific element on the learner's app

Deeplinks can be used for:

  • Courses

  • Lessons

  • Playlists

  • Virtual Conferences

  • Discussions

  • Assignments

  • Course Collections

If you have an AD Blocker extension on your browser it may stop this feature from working!

Let's walk through how you can share a deferred deeplink on a course...

Step 1: Click "edit" on the course you want to link

Step 2: Click on the three dots then "link learners"

Step 3: Copy the link or download the QR code

Learners will need to be on app version 2.77.5 or later

Step 4: Send the link/QR code to the learner

  • If you’re logged in and have EdApp downloaded already:
    • You will be directed to the app and deeplinked into the intended learning material.
  • If you do not have EdApp downloaded:
    • You will be directed to the app store to download the app 
      • Click download app 

      • Once app is downloaded, open the app 

      • Enter credentials and sign in 

      • You will be deep linked into the intended learning material.

  • If you have EdApp downloaded, but you're not logged in:
    • You will be directed to the app's login screen 
    • Enter credentials and sign in 
    • You will be deeplinked into the intended learning material.

If a learner tries to access content that are not currently assigned to, they will view a blank state screen that reads ‘You don’t have permission to access this course. Please contact your admin for access.’

Why is it useful?

We are trying to make it as effortless as possible to get everyone into the specific content and streamline the onboarding process. The aim of this feature is to make sure new app users are getting dropped in the right spot with the least possible steps taken to achieve this. 

  • Admins can create a QR code for training on specific items in the real world.

    • As an admin, you can use the deferred deep-link to test what a course might look like straight in your phone.
