Hyperlinks are great but strategically embedding a website in a VLE could make it more likely that students will engage with that websites content. This should probably be used with caution as it can soon get quite messy however there may be times where it is appropriate.
This can be done by using an iframe in the html of any page in a VLE "toggle to html".
The line of html text below is the code that has been pasted in to the html for this text section (hit the "<>" button in the ribbon menu). Just replace the URL and consider the width/height as required.
<iframe src ="https://docs.moodle.org/39/en/Iframe" width="100%" height="600"><p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p></iframe>
