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 left menu 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 left menu.


Add, Edit, or Delete a Web Content Item

You can add web content to the left menu of your course or project site if you have the appropriate permissions. Anyone can add web content items to My Workspace. For additional instructions on editing or removing items from your site, see Site Editor.
