Use the D2L HTML editor to
create a new page within the Content of a course. The HTML document created is a web page. It can contain text, links, images, and embedded video.
A module must be created first before creating a new page. See
Creating a Module for more information.
Templates for creating pages are also available. See the section on how to
set up templates for information on how to use these.
Without downloading and setting up the HTML Templates, instructors can create new pages that are supported by the HTML editor and have basic functions for editing the look of text. Images can also be used, and videos from Panopto can be embedded (See
Embedding Panopto Videos for more information).
For additional visual appeal and structure, D2L has templates available to be used when creating a new file.
Before templates can be used, they must be added to the course and enabled.
There are a number of templates available for instructors to add and edit, depending on the purpose of the new page.
When a new page is created, it will always appear as the very last topic in a module. To reorganize the content area view Reordering Modules and Topics for more information.
