ARCHIVED: In Oncourse, what are the default site tools?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.
Important:
Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.

In Oncourse, certain tools (i.e., the default tools) appear automatically in the menubar of newly created course, project, or portfolio sites, but many other tools are available.

You can add most tools to most sites using Site Setup; see ARCHIVED: Adding, removing, hiding, or reordering tools. If you want to add a tool that is not available in Site Setup (e.g., to add a tool from the portfolio suite to a course or project site), you can ask the Oncourse administrators to add it manually; to do so, contact your campus Support Center, or fill out the Oncourse help form (also available within Oncourse by clicking Contact Us at the upper right). Note the exceptions listed in the table below.

Note: The following applies to sites created after June 3, 2011.
