 @jstepl , do you have detailed instructions on how to link a photo icon to modules like you showed in the session? It looked great and I'm sure a lot of people would love to imitate it!

Of course  @RebeccaMoulder ​, my apologies! I'm still catching up back in the office Smiley Happy

If you would like to link uploaded images to another part of your course, it works just like hyperlinking text! I'm including a link to that Canvas Guide here:

How do I insert links to course content into the Rich Content Editor using the Content Selector?

You can also follow my steps here:

Once you've inserted your custom image using the Rich Content Editor, highlight it (it will turn light blue) and click:

  1. The link icon Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 3.56.35 PM.png to link to an external site via its URL.
  2. Or select an option from your Content Selector on the right.
  • Links for previously created pages in your course.
  • Files or Images (self explanatory).

Here is a screenshot of my inserted image, highlighted and where to look for your created course pages (remember, they'll only appear here if they're published).


This would be a great way to direct modules. Link to the first content page within each module or topic area (notice how in the example I linked to "Lesson 1") and you can help direct students in a visually-appealing and friendly way!

Please let me know if you have additional questions!
