Professor: Embedding Hyperlinks in Questions (Old Top Hat)

It is possible to embed hyperlinks into the text of all question types. This is done when creating the question itself. In order to add a hyperlink within the question, you will type the phrase you want hyperlinked into square brackets & immediately after that you have the link itself in round brackets. For example, if you were linking to to the phrase Top Hat, you would write it as such:

[Top Hat]( 

 When the question is asked, it will come with the hyperlinked phrase in blue typeface.


Students will also have access to the hyperlink on their end, which will also appear in blue typeface.
