Creating Hyperlinks

  • How do I create a hyperlink in the Rich Content Editor as an instructor? (Canvas)
  • Use meaningful descriptions of what the link is when creating links. The linked text should make sense out of context.
  • Don't use the word "link" in the link description.
  • Avoid describing links with phrases such as "click here," "more information," and "read more."
  • Don't use the URL of the website in the link.
