Validate Links in a Canvas Course

Issue

How do I make sure links in my Canvas courses work?

Resolution

See this Canvas guide on the steps to validate links in a course.

  • On the Settings page, click the "Validate Links in Content" button
  • The validator will display if there are broken links or a link to another course
    • Faculty can edit the pages in HTML view, then edit the links to replace the course IDs with the right ones
  • Often invalid links appear when using copy/paste between courses rather than importing
