What is the Web Content tool?

The Web Content tool allows Instructors to create a link to a web site in the Tool Menu of the site. By default, the link opens a re-direct page that allows the web site to be opened in a new window. If the the link to a web site is within the Sakai instance domain (e.g. university.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. Any changes to the resources folder or file will be reflected when the Web Content tool ink is clicked.

Note that by default the web content link will be automatically launched in a new window.
