Creating New Pages in D2L's Content Area

You can use D2L’s HTML editor to create a new page within the Content area. The HTML document you create is basically a web page; it can contain text, links, images, and embedded video.

Please know that you must create a module before you can create a new page in the Content area.

  1. Go to the module in which you want to create a new page.
  2. Click (A) the New button, then select (B) Create a File from the dropdown menu. (By file, D2L means "HTML file," the source file for a web page.) A page that will allow you to create a new page will open.
  3. Enter a title in the top textbox.
  4. Enter your content in the main textbox. In addition to text, you can add links, images, and embedded video. (See the HTML Editor guide for more information.)
  5. Click the blue Publish button at the bottom of the page.


When you create a new page, it will always appear as the very last topic in a module, so you might need to reorganize your Content area. View the Reordering Modules and Topics guide for more information.
