How to Validate Links in Canvas

Purpose: When course content is copied from Canvas to Canvas, there are potential for links breaking or leading to incorrect locations whether inside or outside the course. Canvas makes it easy to check whether links are broken or not with the “Validate Links in Content” option. Use this option when double checking course content links are accurately set and visible to students.

**There may be some links that show up as invalid but students still have access them. Please see the Canvas guide under “Resources” for those situations.**

**The link validation option is not perfect and may miss some things. Therefore, please double check that areas in your course are correctly “Published” for student access and test them using the “Student View” when necessary”.
