This Basic page is a general-purpose layout.

Easy Editing Use the HTML Editor

You can use the HTML editor to make quick and easy changes without needing any prior knowledge of HTML. Enter your content and use the available controls to apply formatting to your text.

Copying Text

Pro Tip: When writing content, it is a great practice to first write content in a document, such as Microsoft Word. It allows stakeholders to easily collaborate and track changes to content. It also allows you to spot spelling and grammar errors early on.

When pasting text from a Word document into the HTML editor, however, some of the document's text styling will copy over. This will clash with the styles that are carefully crafted for this template. So, we recommend to paste the text without formatting.

To paste copied text without formatting, you can use Ctrl+Shift+V on a PC or Cmd+Shift+V on a Mac. When using Chrome, you can also right click and choose Paste as plain text on a PC or Paste and Match Style on a Mac.

New Window and Download Icons

When adding links that open in new windows/tabs or links to download documents such as PDFs or PPTs, an icon will automatically appear so that learners will know what to expect when they click on the link.

Link that opens in new window: D2L Homepage

Link that opens as PDF download: Inclusive Learning with D2L Brightspace

Screen readers will announce that the link either opens in a new window/tab or downloads a file.
