Broken external link in course

Description

I am taking the CatalystX “Becoming an Inclusive Leader” course. I am in the edX app on iOS. There is an external link in the courseware (see screenshot). Clicking the link opens the link in the phone’s browser. The link target is on courses.edx.org. Since I am not logged in to courses.edx.org in the browser, the link does not open properly. Instead I get the message “unauthorized” with no styling (see screenshot). This is a bad user experience.

I am not sure if this is a bug in the mobile app, the course itself, or the web app. Filing it against mobile since that’s where I was working when I found it.
