Working With Links

To create a link in OU Campus:

2. Enter the URL or navigate to the page in OU by clicking on the folder icon. If you are linking an email address, type in the URL box:     mailto:address@harpercollege.edu     ("address@harpercollege.edu" is replaced with the recipient's email address.)

3. If you want to the link to open in a new window, choose "New Window" for Target (not recommended in most cases).

4. Click OK. The link should appear in the OU editor with link styling.
