You can add links to existing activities to the Content area. This allows all of your course activities and content to appear in one place. For example, if you have a Week 1 module consisting of an article reading and discussion board, you can link the article and the discussion directly in the Content area. This makes it easier for students to access and keep track of all course assignments and materials.
Enter the module where the activity will occur. Click the “Existing Activities” button and choose the activity type from the drop-down menu
A list of all the activities of that type will display. Choose the item you want to create a link to. You can also create a new item by clicking the button at the bottom. (Discussions pictured in the example)
