Creating Descriptive Hyperlinks
Hyperlinks (links) lead a user to another area of the site, files or external websites/files. When incorporating links to other content areas in the site/files or external sources/files, the link text should be descriptive of the destination. When adding a link in the content editor on Blackboard, users are prompted to add a title to link to further clarify the link.
- In the content editor, select the text to be used as a hyperlink.
- Select the link button on the toolbar. The link button is located on the second row of buttons and resembles two chains attached.
- A pop-up window or new tab should open. In the link path text box, add the destination (web address or file) that you want the hyperlink to lead to.
- In the Title text box, add a title that is descriptive of the link and click insert to add the link.
