How do I navigate within a site?

Updated on

It is strongly recommended to use the directed site navigation, and not the back and forward buttons in the web browser, to navigate within a site.

Currently selected site.

Currently selected site in different color

The currently selected site will appear highlighted in a different color in the Site Navigation bar.

The Tool Menu.

Tool Menu

The Tool Menu is a customizable column along the left side of the screen with links for each available tool (e.g., Announcements, Forums, etc.). The number of links will vary depending on which tools were chosen for a site. The currently selected tool is highlighted, while the rest of the Tool Menu options are not.

Select a tool name to go to the corresponding tool.

The Overview page.


Overview on the Tool Menu is the primary landing page for a site. Overview pages can contain a list of recent announcements, discussions, calendar posts, and other selected resources for that specific site.

Resetting a tool.

Select Tool title to reset the tool

When using a tool, selecting the tool name in either the Tool Menu or the content frame returns (or resets) the tool to the landing page for that tool.

Full screen mode.

Expand to fullscreen
Collapse from fullscreen

Activate the full screen for any page by selecting the expand page icon. Exit full screen mode by selecting the same icon that will now depict a collapse screen.

Online help.

Select Help

Select Help in the Tool Menu to be directed to inline documentation resources.
