Creating a Link to Other Content within the Course
The Fast!page HTML Editor is a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you
get) editor that allows users to quickly create or edit formatted online content
without knowledge of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). The Fast!page
HTML Editor is available wherever a text area is found within ANGEL. The editor
is available for both faculty and students. It is found in many places within
ANGEL including the email tool and discussion forums. This tutorial will focus
on how to create a link to content within your course. A wonderful feature of
the HTML editor is the ability to create links to anything within your course.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to create a link to a piece of content,
the email tool, and a discussion forum.
