          2018 WW: EDU: Cybalounge tutorial: Web senders to open web pages

          Cybalounge tutorial: 
          Web senders to open web pages
          Cybalounge: How to make a sign that opens another browser page, allowing your web-world to provide any information that is available on the web.
          Settings to make the object 
          a web-sender
          • A web-sender is an object that, on click, opens a specific web-page in the browser. 
          • In virtual worlds, web-senders are used to open pages with requested information.
          • In an educational or library context, a web-sender would open informative pages.
          • This kind of event assignment probably works with any object. 
          • But is most likely to be used with a texture or a HTML page prim.
          • HTML page prim: Put the web in your web-world
