By definition in most platforms, a deep link takes you directly to specific content, through SSO, even if you are not currently logged into the platform. In the case of Absorb, the direct course links only work if you're already logged into the platform (or have another course window open). This does not serve the purpose of driving engagement from learners as the deep link implies one click access, but does not actually provide access without a few more clicks. Getting a link to a specific course which only takes you to the home page (unless already logged in - which most users are not, most of the time) makes the link look like it isn't fully functioning. In fact, when I first started sharing these links people thought they were broken because they would only get you as far as the homepage/dashboard.
