What is the Web Content tool?
The Web Content tool allows instructors to create a link to a website in a site's Tool Menu. By default, the link opens a re-direct page that allows the website to be opened in a new window. If the link to a web site is within the Sakai instance domain (i.e., luc.edu), instructors may be able to configure the tool to launch the website within the tool rather than as a separate window.
Instructors can also use the Web Content tool to create a tool link to a folder or a file in Resources.
Example of a Web Content link to a website.
By default, the web content link will be automatically launched in a new window.
Example of a Web Content link to a folder or file in Resources.
A web content link to a Resources file or folder will display in-line (i.e., within Sakai).
