D2L Building HTML Content

As an instructor, you have to work hard to make your course content relevant and engaging, but you also need to make sure that your course content is accessible to your students. This workshop proposes that you make it as easy as possible for your students to access your course content by using HTML. The advantage of HTML pages is that they can be accessed the same way that D2L itself is accessed—through a web browser—so any device that can open D2L can also open HTML content without any additional effort. No downloads. No installations. No hassle. After attending this workshop, instructors will have the information and resources necessary to begin building and formatting HTML content inside their D2L courses by using D2L’s built-in HTML editor and a handful of free D2L HTML templates. Note: This workshop is available for ETSU faculty and staff only. You do not have to have any prior knowledge of or experience with HTML in order to attend. Please contact our office with any questions.
