Permalinks for quickly sharing resources

Teachers desperately need a way to redirect students to a content. It is necessary to send a group message reminding an assignment, or announcing a newly added video. In this case, it is required to share a link for the content in a message (either on Itslearning or another platform, e.g. MS Teams). Currently, I do that by right-clicking and copying the links on the menu at the left panel of Resources section, which is quite old fashioned. Furthermore, the URL becomes useless when its deadline expires or it is deactivated.

A URL processing engine might be very helpful for this purpose. The Tree Link function can be expanded to request login for valid links, warn users about expired links and show alternatives (e.g. the course homepage or other parent objects) if a link is unavailable. A share option added to each content would be employed to generate these permalinks. Furthermore, users may determine what happens when the link is unavailable, while they are creating a link.

    What's the problem with copying the URL - other than it is "Old fashioned"?
    If the url becomes useless when the material is deactivated - don't deactivate it then. "Teachers desperately need..." - there IS a way - it may not look sleak but there is a way.
