General Information

Overview

WebsiteLinker is a WebsiteManager tool that lets an instructor or authorized assistant establish a link to a class website.

WebsiteLinker can be used to:

  • Link multiple class sections to one website.
  • Link a class website that is located on another campus server to EEE.
  • Link a class website that is located off-campus.

The link is made available to enrolled students through their MyEEE pages and to the entire campus from the EEE Class Website Index and the Registrar's Electronic Schedule of Classes (ESOC).

Please allow 24 hours for updates to the Registrar's Electronic Schedule of Classes (ESOC).

Prepare your students: Class Websites Primer

If you will be using a class website in your class, you can help prepare your students with the Class Websites primer. The primer is a one-page document that is ideal for printing and distributing to your students in class, or linking to from your class website!

  • Where to find more help

WebsiteLinker & enrollment-restricted websites

If you link a class website to an existing website that is restricted to enrolled students only, the students from both classes will have access to the website.

If you do not wish both sets of students to have access to the website, check the box indicating this when choosing the "Enrolled" restriction in EasyWebsite.
