Sometimes you want to create a document, but you don’t want to deal with the hassle of creating it in Microsoft Word. Well, in D2L, there’s a wonderful WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that will build new pages for you.
To get started, navigate to your course and go to the Content tab. Click on the module where you want to create the new file. Then click on the “Upload/Create” button and the “Create a File” link.
Then, type in the text you want your students to see, just as if it were a regular document. This can include things like graphics, videos, links, and embedded code as well; simply use the toolbar at the top to add these elements. In this case, we’ll just add a title and some text. When you’re done, click on “Save and Close” at the bottom of the page. You can always open this document again later to edit it.
The new file will then appear in your content module folder. To further edit the file, click the down arrow (⌄) next to the document name, and choose Edit HTML.
If you would like to get back to the Content screen, You can click the Content tab, or use the links above your document.
