#264 Link Validation in Canvas

January 06, 2016

As an instructor, you can verify all external links throughout your course to ensure they are valid. You can check these links using the course link validator, which searches through course content and returns invalid or unresponsive external links in both published and unpublished content.

This is particularly useful when copying course materials from previous semesters into your current course. Oftentimes a link used in the past has been changed by the publisher or the resource has been removed altogether.

You can find a find a quick rundown on how to use Link Validation in your course(s) here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-5626
