Brightspace HTML Templates Resource


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.


Instructors can take their content topic pages from this:

NOTE: This resource is intended to help Xavier faculty build on the skills learned in the "Accessibility and Usability" module of the #LearnEverywhereXULA (#LEX) course and take their course design to the next level. You can find the open version of the #LearnEverywhereXULA course on this wiki. However, Xavier faculty who are NOT enrolled in the Brightspace #LearnEverywhereXULA course and would like to be enrolled should fill out this enrollment request form. Enrollment in the #LEX course is an opportunity to experience Brightspace from a learner's perspective. Additional activities and reflections are available in the Brightspace course that are not available in the open resource.
