Blackboard (Faculty) - Content Area: Add a Web Link

This document describes how to add a Web Link to your Blackboard course. Web Links are links to online content, such as web pages, online videos, and content stored in places like OneDrive or DropBox.

  1. Go to the content area in your Blackboard course where you want your link to appear (ex: Coursework, About this Course, Week 1 folder)

  2. Click Build Content on the toolbar. 

  3. Select Web Link from the drop-down menu.

  4. Click Add web link

  5. Paste your link into the URL area. (Tip: it is best to copy the link by going directly to the website and copying it from your browser's address bar; or by going to the "Share" window of a web resource, like a YouTube video, and copying it from there.)  

  6. Give the link a name. 

  7. Add any additional information, such as instructions or supplemental resources, in the description area.

    Add name, URL and description of the website

  8. Click the Submit button at the top or bottom of the page.
