Pages

On this page

Create content with a full range of HTML functions.

Pages contain your text, images, and other embedded media. Pages are linked directly from the main page of the course for a clean visual design and easy student navigation.

A page is perfect for smaller pieces of content that students can easily access from the front page of the course, such as the following:

  • Text based content such as a course syllabus or background material
  • Pages with embedded images and videos
  • Embedded search widget for a Twitter feed
  • Embedded search widget for Flickr photos tagged with course keywords
