Description

Whether you are new to online teaching and learning or an experienced user of D2L Brightspace, you can use the pre-formatted HTML Templates and Course Template as starting points when designing a new course or re-designing an existing course. The templates provide you with example materials and course layout that you may copy and edit as appropriate for your needs. This two-week short course will help you learn the skills necessary to apply and edit the provided templates.

Course Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize/Identify a template.
  • Explain the benefits of using a template.
  • Modify multiple elements within a template.
