Inserting a weblink in the D2L Content Section
First, select the content tab from the course navigation bar.
This document describes how to insert a link into the content section of D2L.
Then, click the blue button labeled "New" and choose "Create a Link" from the dropdown menu.
Next, give a name to the link - not the web address, but rather the name of the website. For example, put "Google" instead of www.google.com. Then, put the web address into the "url" box. After, check the box that says "open as an external resource."
Finally, this is what the newly created link will look like in your Content page.
