Using the HTML Editor in D2L

Quick Start Guide:

The HTML Editor is available across numerous tools in your D2L Brightspace course.  The HTML Editor enables you to create HTML formatted content.  For example, the HTML Editor is available when you post to a discussion topic, create comments for assignments, and more.

  • The HTML Editor toolbar is available for most text entry fields to add rich-text content. The HTML Editor will not be present in every text-entry field – for example, fill-in-the-blank and arithmetic questions will often support plain text only.
  • To save your changes, remember to save the page or check that the HTML Editor is saved before navigating to a different page.
