What are HTML templates?

HTML template overview

The default template package supplied by D2L comes with several purpose-built topic types, such as Course Introduction, Module Introduction, Meet Your Facilitator, Basic page, Elements page, Image Editing, Video Lecture, and Conclusion pages.

  • The Course Introduction page features a full-screen image for visual impact, and a clean area for course description.
  • The Module Introduction page features a prominent banner image across the top and a numbered list can be used to list a module’s learning objectives. This makes it ideal as the first page of a module in a course.
  • The Meet Your Facilitator page can serve as a dedicated space to present facilitator’s expertise, experience and personality.
  • The Basic page is a general-purpose layout.
  • The Elements page includes samples of some commonly used page elements which you can copy to other pages.
  • The Image editing page illustrates the different ways images can be used.
  • The Video Lecture page is a great way to present video content, while accompanying it with supporting context, explanations and activities.
  • The Conclusion makes an excellent page to conclude each module.
