How do you use the Teach Up HTML link feature?

The “html link” input is a key feature of the Teach Up authoring tool. It lets you add websites and digital tools directly into your module. By using it, your learners won’t have to switch tabs or pages and will remain immersed in your e-learning experience. ✨

How does it work?

It couldn't be easier to use! Head to your module and click “Add” then “More” and “Link”. Next, give your content a title and add a website address of your choosing. Nothing beats an example to illustrate this. 😉

Let's look at an example of a digital project management tool:

After creating your account for the digital tool, head to your workspace

Create the content you want in the chosen tool

Then click on the function that lets you share/distribute your work. Copy the link that appears.

In your Teach Up module, paste the link in the “Enter your URL here” section, then click “OK”

Lastly, test your content by clicking on ⁝ then on “Preview this input”

Congratulations! 👏 You’ve just integrated your first digital tool into your Teach Up module.

By default, an intermediate page will appear before the digital tool is displayed. If you want to disable this, click on the ⚙️ icon and untick the “Show an introductory screen” box.

Every tool is unique, as is the way it’s shared. If a tool can't be integrated into your Teach Up module, there are two potential solutions:

Go to the frequently asked questions for the digital tool and find out how to share the tool you want to integrate into Teach Up.

It may simply be that the tool doesn't allow integration in third-party applications. In this case, you’ll need to use a different tool for your module. But don’t worry, there are plenty of digital tools on the market, so you’re bound to find something that works for you! 😉

The HTML input function also works within SPOCs. For more information, head to the dedicated section.

Every day at Teach Up, we strive to offer you the best possible experience with our solutions. This is why we’ve put together a non-exhaustive list of digital tools you can integrate into your modules using the “HTML link” input:
