How do I navigate within a site?

Updated

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

Currently selected site.

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

The 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 in a different background color than the rest of the Tool Menu.

Select the tool's name to go to the corresponding tool.

The Overview page.

Overview on the Tool Menu takes you to the primary landing page for the site you're in. Overview pages can contain a list of recent announcements, recent message or forum discussions, calendar posts and other selected resources for that specific site.

Resetting a tool.

select a tool title to reset the tool

When you're using a tool, selecting the tool's name in either the Tool Menu or the content frame takes you back to the first page of that tool and resets the tool to the landing page for the tool.

Online help.

select Help

You can find documentation for Sakai and integrated tools (e.g., Zoom) by selecting Help in the Tool Menu of any site.
