Use HTML templates

Uploading content, such as .pdf or .doc files, is not the only way to share information on Brightspace. You can also Create a File, which will be displayed as an HTML page embedded in Brightspace.

Student surveys have shown that students prefer these HTML pages over .pdf, as rendering of .pdf files is not always flawless. Furthermore, HTML files perform better regarding scaling, are searchable in Brightspace, are optimized for various devices, including readibility standards and help you keep the content in your course well formatted.

In order to offer your course content in a uniform manner, we strongly advise the use of File Templates, see the option below (Creating a Page using a File Template). New, more simple versions are available for 2018-2019. Should you wish to use the templates from 2017-2018, please the option see below – Previous template versions.
