How do I create hyperlinks to group content in the New Rich Content Editor as a student?

When using the New Rich Content Editor, you can insert links to previously created group content. You may be able to link to content in Pages, Announcements, and Discussions. You can also insert links that, when clicked, act like Group Navigation links.

Notes: 

  • The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. If the Rich Content Editor in your course does not match the images in this lesson, your course is using the classic Rich Content Editor.
  • To create hyperlinks to group content or Group Navigation links, you must open the New Rich Content Editor within a group.
