The following documentation will demonstrate how to add a tool to the course navigation menu.

Log into your course and click on Edit Course.
Click Navigation & Themes.
Click on the title of the active navigation bar, denoted by (Active) next to the title.
*Note: You can create a new Navbar by creating a blank Navbar or by copying an existing Navbar. To create a Navbar:
|Create a blank Navbar||Copy existing Navbar|
In the location that you would like to add a tool click either Create Custom Link or Add Links.
*Note: The links that appear on the main course navigation bar are located in the the Bottom Left Link Area and Bottom Right Link Area.
Type a name for your custom link in the Name field.
If you are linking to an External Learning tool (i.e. McGraw Hill) or a specific course item, click the Insert Quicklink button, then proceed to the next step.
If you are entering a custom link, type it into the URL field, then proceed to step 10.
Click on your desired area, most commonly External Learning Tools.
The following step reflects inserting an External Learning Tool link, but other processes are identical.
Click on your desired link.
Click the Create button.
When done adding links, click Save and Close.
Make sure that your Navbar is set to active. If not select your Navbar from the drop-down menu. Click Apply.
Your tool will be displayed on the navigation bar once you leave the Edit Navbar screen.
