Illinois Compass 2g, Adding Tool Links to Spaces

How to add Announcements and My Grades to your space

NOTE:  Because of an issue (which we are now working on) all new Compass spaces were created without the link to "MyGrades" in their course menus.  This presents as some students (not all) reporting they can't access their grades, when they use the "My Grades" link on the main Compass home page.  Instructors may correct this issue by following these instructions.

This solution may be used to create any course tool link found in the Course Menu.  Enter an appropriate name for the link, and select the appropriate type of link from the "Type" drop down menu.
