Scroll to the bottom or top of the page and click Submit.

You will receive a purple Success message and your weblink will appear in the content area.

All newly added content appears at the bottom of the page, so you may need to scroll to the bottom if you have other content already in this area of your course. It is advised that you now click the URL (weblink) yourself to be sure that it works and that you've pasted it in correctly.
