Enter the New Page Title in the textbox that appears below the Create a New Page button and then click Create.

For this example I have entered the date that the recording took place and the recording title so that it is easier for students to locate recordings. Highlight the text you want to use as the link text then click the Link to URL (Chain) icon, to insert an external link.

Your link will now be active and you can repeat this process as many times as needed for your recordings.
