Brightspace HTML Templates

Users can access Brightspace using many different devices (e.g., desktop computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone). Brightspace's responsive design automatically adapts to different screen sizes to provide a great user experience on computers, tablets, and smartphones.

HTML Templates will assist instructors in developing content topic pages that will adapt page contents to fit any device thus making the pages more responsive, accessible, and interactive.

HTML Templates provide instructors with an easy way to create great looking, responsive, accessible, and interactive content topic pages. HTML Templates page layouts are instructor-friendly and are designed to be edited using the HTML Editor in Brightspace.
