Add assignments to a Lessons page
Instructors may add links to site activities (i.e. Assignments, Forums, Test & Quizzes) on Lessons pages.
Note: These links will automatically update to maintain links to published activities if you copy your course content to a new site, as long as you do not change the name of the activity. However, you will need to publish your activities in the new site for the links to become active.
