Restricting External URLs by Groups

Question asked by Rick Jerz on Nov 28, 2018
Latest reply on Dec 3, 2018 by Peter Hess

I want to restrict some "External URL" links to certain groups.  For example, in a Module, I want to have three External URLs for three different "case studies," and I want one case study only viewable by one of three groups.

 

From my own investigation, Canvas does not provide this type of functionality.  It seems that External URLs do not use groups, so they are always viewable by every group.  But I thought that I would ask this question just in case I am missing a simple Canvas technique that can be used to accomplish my goal.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

 

(Example)

Module 1

  • External URL pointing to Case Study1 - Group1 sees this link, but it is invisible to the other groups.
  • External URL pointing to Case Study2 - Group2 sees this link, but it is invisible to the other groups.
  • External URL pointing to Case Study3 - Group3 sees this link, but it is invisible to the other groups.
