How do I navigate within a site?

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.

Currently selected site.

The currently selected site will appear highlighted in a different color in the navigation bar. You will also see the title of the site as the first item in the breadcrumbs below the site navigation bar.

The Tool Menu.

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. Menu colors and icons may also vary depending on the theme or skin chosen for your site.

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

The Home page.

The Overview page.

Home on the Tool Menu takes you to the primary landing page for the site you're in. Home 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.

When you're using a tool, clicking on the tool's name in either the Tool Menu or breadcrumbs (gray/black bar) will reset the tool.

Online help.

You can get help by clicking Help in the Tool Menu. You can also get contextual help by clicking the Help link within the tool content frame.
