Teachers can give their students access to lessons and assignments by using the share link created for an assignment. 

To share a lesson or assignment with students via a Learning Management System such as Canvas or Blackboard, follow the steps below.


  1. Create an assignment and get a share link. 
  2. Copy and paste the share link to your assignment body post. Here's an example of what it would look like in Canvas:
  3. When students click on the link you send them, they will see one of two things:
    1. If they are logged in to their free student account (FSA), they will be taken directly to the lesson. As shown below, students will be notified that a lesson has been assigned to them with the due date clearly shown.
    2. If they are not logged in or do not have an FSA account, they'll be prompted to either login or create a free account to get access to the assignment. Upon logging in or creating a free account, they will automatically be redirected to the lesson. If you are looking for instructions on how to send a lesson to your students on Google Classroom, click here!
