Web Links: How do I add links to web site resources?
Create Web Link
The Create Web Link feature allows you to place links to outside websites within any folders or learning modules of a course site. Students click on the link and are taken directly to the linked website.
Enter the full address in the URL field (e.g., http://www.google.com)
Decide whether to force the web site to Open in a new browser window or within the course frame itself.
TIP: There are two main reasons you might want the web site to open in a new window: copyright concerns and ease of navigation. Opening a website within the framework of another site is called framing and is frowned upon by copyright scholars. Many sites do not mind being framed. Educational institutions usually have more leeway than commercial organizations, but asking permission first is always a good idea. To be safe, choose to open the site in a new window.
Opening a website in a new window also allows users to more easily move back and forth between sites without losing their place. Another consideration is personal preference: some people like having multiple windows open on their desktop while others do not.
