Creating a link for each of the course names isn't too onerous a job. It's done where the course name is rendered. That'll be in the CourseRow component. You can see that we've surrounded the course's name in the table cell with a link component. Obviously, we've imported that from react-router-dom. Look at how the to attribute is constructed though. We use a JavaScript expression as its value. We make the value using a template literal string with backticks providing the initial part of the route. That's slash courses slash. We then interplay the value course Id to the end of it. You'll notice that we've deconstructed the course prop to make the code look cleaner. So every course row returned will have a different link created provided that unique Ids have been used in the data supplied. The next step is to create a route that recognizes the end of this link path as a parameter.
