    • Dynamic Link to Newest Version – will put in a link that is always updated when the object is updated by the owner. 
    • Locked Link to This Version– will put in a link that is NOT automatically updated when the object is updated by its owner. 
    • Copy as Content – will create a copy of the object in Content. It will not be linked to the original in the LOR and will not be updated when changes are made. 
       
      NOTE:  If the original is deleted, objects that were added using either the dynamic and locked link version will have a dead link in the content area. Only the Copy option will retain the object if it is deleted from the LOR.  Links can be switched between Dynamic and Locked at will. 
       
  8. Click Create Topic to add the object to the module selected earlier. This page will also display optional settings for the content, such as whether to open it in a new window.
  9. You should now see the LOR object listed under your selected module.
