I am a third grade teacher. I am trying to make a page that links to things like Canvas Quiz or Canvas Assignment. I would like it to open in another window keeping the current window opened when my students click on it. This would make it so much easier for littles (k-4) to get to things with just linking from a page. For example, anything already in Canvas links to the canvas page, put it opens in the same window. IXL and others (external links) open in another window. I want that to happen with my Canvas links like Kami assignments and the quiz. I tried playing with the html but reading other chats and could not find how to... any HTML changes I made did not work.
I contacted Canvas Chat and was told there is no way to do this at this time. They did tell me the keyboard shortcuts to teach students:
There are two ways to do it, they can right click and click the open in new tab. Or they can hold the Control / Ctrl key and if they click while holding that key it will open in another tab.
I think if Canvas made it easier for k-4 educators to use this with their students they would find a way to allow us to select to have any link we wish open in another tab.
