Creating New Pages in D2L Content


Use the D2L HTML editor to create a new page within the Content of a course. The HTML document created is a web page. It can contain text, links, images, and embedded video.

A module must be created first before creating a new page. See Creating a Module for more information.

  1. Go to the module where the new page will be added.
  2. Select the Upload/Create button.
  3. A dropdown menu will appear. From the dropdown menu select Create a File.
  4. In the Create a File page, enter a title in the top textbox.
  5. Enter content in the main textbox. (See the HTML Editor Guide for more information.)
  6. Select Save and Close.


When a new page is created, it will always appear as the very last topic in a module. To reorganize the content area view Reordering Modules and Topics for more information.
