What is a Web Link?

A web link is a piece of content that provides a link to a webpage or experience outside of SparkLearn®. Web Links use a site's URL to redirect the learner. Like articles, Web Links can be related to quizzes, flashcards and tips.

SparkLearn also has the ability to integrate to external content using web links. A developer API can be created allowing the system to connect to native applications. This improves your ability to align your learning catalogs within the SparkLearn application. Contact your Account Manager for more information.
