Adding Deep Links in D2L (non LTI)


Please note: The information provided here is intended only to assist with some of the common ways our products can be integrated in this system. Our Help Site is not a comprehensive guide to use of the D2L LMS, and our team can only assist with Credo integration; we are unable to provide support for any other aspect of D2L's functionality. Screenshots are provided for illustrative purposes but may not exactly match your own system, particularly since navigation elements can vary depending on your version of the platform.

These instructions show ways to link to or embed Credo content using the direct links provided on your admin dashboard. These links behave just like any other hyperlink to a web resource you might use in your D2L course.  

Direct links do not use LTI For the authentication of direct links and embed codes, you can use the options described here: Authentication Options.

Adding a URL to a Module

In your course outline, locate the Module where you'd like to add the link, and click the New icon. Select Create A Link from the menu of options.


Copy the deep link that you want to use from your admin dashboard, and paste it into the URL field. Add the name of the content item to the Title field. If you'd like the content to display embedded on the page, leave the Open as External Resource option unchecked. If you'd like the page to display a link for students to open the resource in a new tab, check this option.


Click Create.

Items that are not opened in a new window will display embedded in the page.

If you selected the Open External Resource option, the link will appear in the module outline, and open the Credo content in a new window when clicked.
