e-Resources in Teaching: Adding e-resources to your LMS: Sakai

A quick introduction to integrating e-textbooks into the USU curriculum.


ETI recommends that e-resources (assigned e-books or e-articles) be linked on either the Sakai Syllabus page or on a Lessons page as a Content Link or from the Rich Text Editor. We also suggest you include the permalink to the resource on the course syllabus file (i.e. .doc or .pdf).

Add link to Syllabus Page

To add an e-resource link to your syllabus, go to the Syllabus page, select Add Item. Please see Additional Information in the sidebar for detailed instructions.
