About this article

This article demonstrates how to move and reorder modules and topics in a table of contents (TOC) in a Brightspace course. It is intended for instructors.

Editor Basics

The Brightspace HTML Editor allows the author to create multimedia materials and posts. The HTML Editor allows for the formatting of text and insertion of media of many types.

The controls in the editor are similar to those in many other editors with the addition of means to insert media files. The image below gives a brief tour of the controls:


Of special note are the buttons in the Insert Options category. (The left end of the top bar.)

  • The first button in the row, the one that looks like a Play button on a VCR, is Insert Stuff. It is used to insert things like files (PDF, DOC, ...), videos, and ePortfolio artifacts.
  • Next is Insert Image, the one that looks like a camera. Use it to insert images from your computer or the cloud.
  • The third button is Insert Quiclink which lets you add things from the other Brightspace tools.
  • Finally, the downward pointing arrow produces a pulldown arrow that lets you all symbols, lines, and emoticons.

Check out this video for a demonstration of how the HTML Editor is used in real life.
