Gadgets

"A gadget is a little program that provides additional functionality or provides streamlined access to functionality within OU Campus."

There are two basic types of gadget: Sidebar and Dashboard.

Sidebar

Sidebar gadgets are located at the right side of the OU Campus interface. They can be shown or hidden by clicking the appropriate icons. To show them, click the "power cord" icon. To hide them, click the "right arrow" icon.

Each gadget can be maximized or minimized by clicking its up or down arrow icon.
