Web Content: Overview
What it does
The Web Content tool allows site owners to
display external web sites within their worksites.
Links: To set up a Web Content link, you can
specify the URL for any web site and a brief descriptive
title. A link will appear in the menubar with the title
you've chosen; when you click the link, the web site will open within
Multiple links: You may add multiple Web Content
links to your menubar.
Things to consider
- If you want to provide many links to web sites for your course or
project participants, you can avoid cluttering your menubar by listing
most of them in the Resources section.
- Departments, collaborations, or other groups may use the Web Content
tool to provide a prominent link to their public worksites.
- Some web sites may have coding that prevents them from opening within
a frame (i.e., the page will take over the whole browser when you click the
link, rather than displaying within the application).
