Linking to activities/other courses in app
 

We are beginning to create quite a few courses that are developed especially for the moodle app. A lot of it works great. However, when linking to an activity (that is within the course) it takes me to the mobile web browser. Is there anyway of setting it up, so I can do linking to activities (and even other courses) and still stay within the app environment?

Another version of this also happens when I write the specific title of an activity in for example a section summary. As on the moodle website, it automatically turns it into a link that will take me to the activity. In the app, this again means that it will try to take me out of the app and on to the website instead, which is pretty disruptive for the learning flow (especially if the user is not logged in on the web browser and then has to go through that process as well). 


Thanks!

Hi Christoffer!

If the activity you're linking is supported by the app, then the app should try to open it directly, not in browser. Which type of activity are you linking?

Can you please share one of the activity links that aren't working? You can remove the domain URL if you want, I'm interested in how the URL looks like.

Cheers,

Dani

It is a "Forum" activity - Here is the link it uses: https://fabo.org/course/KKBA_cohort2/forum/3768-personal-learning-log

The attached screen is how it looks in the app. Here you see the auto-generated link that takes me to the web browser. 


For me what would be ideal, is to find a way to link to activities and courses that the app will try to find in the app data before going online.
