What can I do when the Course Links Validator says links are unreachable and I have deleted them or they do work ?

Howdy  @shelley_millhou ‌,

Hope all is well. Thanks for sharing your question; it's a good one!

Just because the link validator says a link is unreachable- doesn't mean that it is not working. Most LinkedIn and YouTube videos which links are just fine will come back and say they are unreachable. Test them and if you can access them, carry on!

How do I validate links in a course?  

Once you check your links and everything is good- I would suggest setting up the content link error notification set to "immediately." That will give you an idea if students are clicking on a link and it's unpublished, non-existent or broken. 

Hope that helps,

Sky V. King
