Have you ever wondered how teachers create beautiful courses with graphic buttons that link to places within their course and even to external resources? Well, now you too can make your course not only appealing to the eye but also functional for your students or users. Any image can be used to create a button. To upload an image to your course follow these simple directions. This guide will help with creating links within your course. In the Rich Content Editor rather than linking text, select your picture to create a button that hyperlinks to content within your course. You can also add hyperlinks outside of your Canvas course using these simple steps
