ASTRO is all about providing safe, guided access to the internet, and links form the basis of that! A link allows you to access a specific site within a lesson. In ASTRO the link can be styled by choosing an image, colour and title to help students navigate to the correct content.
In a lesson dialog click the 'Add Content' button and select ‘Add Link’.
This will present a popup where you can create a card that will display a link for students. Entering the url of the page you want the student to have access to. This will automatically populate an image for the card and a title from the link's data if available. You can edit this title, add your own image or choose a pattern if you prefer. A card colour can also be selected to make it easy for students to be guided to the correct link.
In a lesson dialog click on the three dots on the link card you want to edit. Then select the edit option. This will open the Edit Link dialog where you can change all the details of the link card just like you did when creating a card.
In a lesson dialog click on the three dots on the link you want to delete. Then select the delete option. This will open a confirmation dialog to make sure you want to delete this link. Please note that this action can’t be undone.
To create a duplicate of a link, click on the three dots on the link you want to copy. Then select the duplicate option. This will create a copy of the link within the lesson.

URSOR is a brand-new app designed to allow kids to search the internet in a safe, appropriate manner. At URSOR we never track, allow advertising, or collect data of your child’s usage. Our goal at URSOR is to make a useful, safe platform for kids to start their early digital education. URSOR also allows kids to save and organise their previous searches in a visual way that helps retain knowledge and make connections between all of their interests!
For us at URSOR, an Internet for Kids means a safe place where kids can explore age-appropriate content on their favourite topics without the distractions of ads, click-bait, and hyperactive targeted content. Inside URSOR there is no social media, no auto-play YouTube, and no mindless and passive attention-killing content. Kids should be able to access the vast knowledge of the web without the exploitation of their vulnerable developing brains.
You would never throw your kid into the deep-end of a pool before he can swim, so we wouldn’t suggest doing the same with unfiltered, open-ended surfing online. URSOR starts kids slowly by introducing them to the basics of searching, choosing, and navigating sources. We remove the distractions of ads and excessive paid-for links so kids can learn first to view, digest, and retain information in a healthy age-appropriate manner.
STAY TUNED! URSOR is being fine tuned and polished as we speak and will be released by Autumn 2022. Until then please sign-up here for weekly updates on our progress, interesting links for kids, and our super-helpful blog posts!
