You are here:
< All Topics

A link content item in Blackboard Ultra is a reference to an external website listed alongside other course content. When you add a link content item to your course, there are various settings to be aware of.

To add a new link, click the plus button where you want to add a link and click Create Content.

Add menu with Create button highlighted

From the Create Item menu, choose Link.

Create Item menu with Link highlighted

First, give the link a name by clicking the default title, erasing it, and typing your link title. Choose whether to keep your link hidden from students or visible to students from the dropdown menu.

Add the URL for the link in the Link URL box. If you wish to add a description of the link, add that in the description text box. Click Save.

Link Settings menu

Your link will now appear on the Course Content page. The description is displayed under the link title and visibility status. If you need to edit or delete the link, click the three dots to the right of the link title and choose edit or delete from the menu.
