Key concepts

Links: To set up Web Content links, you can specify the URL for any website, and a brief descriptive title. A link will appear in the menubar with the title you've chosen; when you click the link, the website will open within your worksite. You may add multiple Web Content links to your menubar.

Things to consider

  • If you want to provide many links to websites for your course participants, you can avoid cluttering your menubar by listing most of them in the Materials section.
  • Departments, collaborations, or other groups may use the Web Content tool to provide a prominent link to their public worksite.
