5. What if I already have a web site for my course?
If you have already spent a lot of time and effort to build a course web site for a specific course, you can still use your old web site by importing your old pages into CCNet. This can be done by making your main page point to a specific URL instead of the default CCNet main page. You can also add additional links to external pages. Alternatively, you can import some of the CCNet functionalities to your current web site without actually using a CCNet based web site for your course.
