Adding an accessible template package to a course

D2L has designed a template package that course instructors can use to create accessible HTML content files.
The template use cascading style sheets (CSS) to format the content in the HTML files.

Create great looking, responsive, and accessible content topic pages using the page layouts provided in the D2L Daylight HTML template package. The included instructor-friendly layouts are designed to be edited using the HTML Editor in the Learning Environment.

All the template packages use the same folder structure and name, which makes it easy to swap out your CSS file for different
CSS files if you want to change the appearance of your course content.

To get started, download the Daylight HTML Template package and follow the step by step instruction document within the package (Daylight_HTML_Template_Guide_v2.0.docx):

  • Log in to GeorgiaVIEW and click the gear icon at the top right side
