How do I add a link to my EdBlog in Courseworks?

You can add a link to your EdBLog anywhere on your Courseworks site that has a visual editor and supports a hyperlink.

As a general recommendation, add your EdBlog link to the home page of your Courseworks site as well as to your syllabus tool. 

To add to your Courseworks homepage:

Navigate to Home.

Click Edit.

Scroll down to the visual editor.

Write something like "Course Blog"

Highlight the text and click on the green icon in the editor that looks like a world with a chain.

Complete the fields, adding your course EdBlogs web address and click OK.

Scroll down and save your work.

To add to your Syllabus tool:

Navigate to syllabus

Click edit.

Add an item or edit an existing item.

Scroll down to the visual editor.

Write something like "Course Blog"

Highlight the text and click on the green icon in the editor that looks like a world with a chain.

Complete the fields, adding your course EdBlogs web address and click OK.

Scroll down and click post.
