Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

A “Link Resource” allows you to connect your students to an outside website through Course Hub. You can post one or more “Link Resources” here that you will be asking students to reference frequently. Course Hub saves your students time by putting all of your online resources in one place. 

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Log into Course Hub at http://courses.miis.edu with your MIIS username and password.

2. On the left, under “My Semester Dashboard” click on the academic term you plan to add resources to (e.g. Spring 2014 - MIIS).

3. Next to the course you want to add a Link resource to, click the grey “Manage Resources” button. This will take you to a “Resource” page for the course.

4. To add a Link resource, click on the “+ Add a Resource” link in the course menu. This will take you to the Resource content type management page with the following options:

    • ERES Resource
    • Link Resource
    • RSS Feed Resource
    • SANSSpace Resource
    • WordPress Resource

To proceed with adding a Link resource, click "Link Resource" in the list of content types.

5. Next, configure the Link resource for the following settings:

Resource/Link Title (*required)

Enter a short, clear title here.

Notes: This is the title that will be visible to students in Course Hub.

URL (*required)

Copy and paste the complete website URL.

Who can view the link and updates? (*required)

Default is "The Class".

Description (not required)

Default is set to empty.

Notes: You do not need to change the default. If you would like to add a brief note here about how the Link will be used, you may. 

6. Finally, click "Save" to proceed with adding a Link resource. You can now access your Link resource directly from the Course Hub dashboard.
