This page contains information about creating course links within Illinois Compass 2g courses.
A course link is a shortcut to an area, a tool, or an item and can be added to a content area, learning module, lesson plan, or folder. All existing items that appear in the pop-up course map can be linked to using a course link. For example, if a course link is created to a tool, and that tool is not turned on, users accessing the course link receive a message informing them that the tool is not turned on. The same is true if a course link is created to a content item that is subject to Adaptive Release rules. Users who are not permitted to access the content because of a rule receive a message informing them that access to the content is not permitted.
