We have a list of items, why don't we say courses. And you want to be able to display more information about a course when you click on its name in the list. Let's say for argument's sake, in a course component, how do we go about creating a link, and letting a course component know which course it's supposed to display. We're gonna solve this problem in several steps. First, we will dynamically create some links for each course name using the course's ID. Then, we'll add a route to render a path for each link created for the courses. Finally, we'll examine the course's ID in the path clicked to inform the course component which course it needs to display. But before we dive in to doing that, we need to look into the information that's passed along when a route is followed.
