From the "Existing Activities" dropdown, click External Learning Tools. In the pop-up, select the link that you created for the section earlier. It will be listed by the Title that you gave it. This will add the link to the course.

To test that the setup worked correctly, click the link that is created. A new window should open and the correct Course/Section within Bearface should open. As an instructor, you will be taken directly to main course view. For students, the first time they click the link, they will be taken to the enrollment page. After they have enrolled, they will be taken directly to the main course view every time. The students will only be able to enroll in the Bearface course material via the link in D2L.
