Linking to Google Docs from D2L

There is currently a known issue in D2L that impacts quicklinks pointing to any “” website.  iOS (iPhone/iPad) users that are viewing a course in “Desktop View” will not be able to click on quicklinks to “” websites.  The supported workaround is to create the link in a new course file using the “Insert Stuff” tool.

Within any course file in the D2L text editor, you can choose the “Insert Stuff” icon from the menu bar.  Within the dialog window, choose “Insert Link” and then enter the desired URL.

The Insert Stuff button is pressed down in D2L
