Thinkific is an online platform enabling users to create, market, sell, and deliver online courses. It provides a place for users to store all the material needed for their courses: video lectures, text-based materials such as assignments or notes, and audio recordings. Its intuitive interface allows instructors to easily create engaging learning experiences without any coding knowledge required.
As someone who has been using Thinkific for years, I know just how useful it can be when sharing links directly to lessons within courses you have created on the platform. It’s even more so if those lessons are behind password walls or otherwise hidden from students until they purchase access!
In this article, I’ll show you how easy it is to find and share these direct links so that you can get more people interested in what you have created on Thinkfic!
How to Create a URL Link to a Specific Lesson in Thinkific
As an experienced user of Thinkific, I understand how important it is to be able to share direct links to specific lessons within your courses. In this section, I will walk you through the process step-by-step on how to do just that!
Step 1: Log into Your Account and Navigate to the Course Page
The first step in creating a direct link for a specific lesson in Thinkific is logging into your account and navigating to the course page. From there, click on “Courses” from the left side menu and select the course you want to create a direct link for. Doing this will take you directly to that course’s page, where you can create links for individual lessons.
Step 2: Select the Desired Lesson from the Course Content Menu
Once you have navigated to the course page, select “Course Content” from the top menu bar. All the individual lessons in your course are listed with their associated URLs. Scroll down until you find the lesson you wish to share a direct link for and click on it.
Step 3: Copy and Share the URL Link for that Specific Lesson
When you have clicked on your desired lesson, copy its associated URL by right-clicking on it and selecting “Copy Link Address” or “Copy Link Location” (depending on what browser type).
You can paste this URL wherever needed so people can access this lesson without needing access codes or other authentication requirements!
Other Considerations when Sending a Direct Link or URL for Thinkific Lessons
I understand how important it is to be sure that the recipient of a direct link to a lesson has the necessary access to view the content. In this section, I’ll provide some additional considerations when sending URL links for Thinkific lessons.
Consider Including Additional Context When Sharing Links
I suggest including additional context when sharing links for lessons created on Thinkific. Doing this will help ensure that the recipient knows what they are clicking on and has an understanding of what content they are about to have access to before following the link you have provided them with.
For instance, if you are providing someone with a link directly to a quiz within your course, make sure that you mention this beforehand so they know what type of activity they are being asked to complete!
Ensuring That The Recipient Has Access To View The Content Being Shared
Another important consideration when sending direct links or URLs for Thinkific lessons is ensuring the recipient can view the shared content. If their account does not have sufficient privileges (such as if they need to purchase the course first), their attempts at accessing this material will fail and result in an error message instead!
Throughout this article, I have provided a step-by-step guide on creating and sharing direct links to specific lessons within Thinkific courses. As an experienced user of the platform, I know first-hand just how useful it can be to quickly and easily share content with others.
Creating direct links to specific lessons within your Thinkific course is an easy process that only takes a few minutes. However, by taking these few minutes now, you can save lots of time later when trying to share content or promote your course!
