Embed a URL within a lesson

Embedding a URL within a lesson has never been easier.

Embedding a URL within your courseware is a clean and tidy way to incorporate hyperlinks. You may be looking to cite a source, link to another learning material, or guide your learner to a company portal. It can be anything. Just remember, make sure its informative or serves a concise purpose as you don’t want your learner wandering too far from the lesson itself.

In this post, we explain how to embed URL’s within your lessons.

1. Navigate to the location you would like to use the hyperlink in

You will only be able to provide hyperlinks or URL’s from within your lesson content. This could be on any Content slide, within the Takeaway Field, or on the Exit slide.

2. Use the following HTML tag

Write the following HTML template into your lesson where you would like the URL to sit.

<a href=”URL”>Demo text that will work as the link</a>

Embed URL A

3. Specify where you would like the hyperlink to point to

Specify the target in the <a href=” “> code, by inserting the URL between the two pairs of straight quotation marks.

Embed URL B

4. Add the hyperlinked text

Now add in the text that will work as the link.

5. Close your HTML tag

You now need to indicate where the link ends, which is called “closing your HTML tag”. To do this, add an </a> at the end of the hyperlinked text.

Your text will now look something like this: 

<a href=”URL”>Demo text that will work as the link</a>

To the learner, your URL will look like this:
