Introduction to D2L Document Templates

The D2L Document Templates were designed by D2L to make it easier for Instructors to create accessible, professional looking HTML content topic pages. There are currently ten templates to select from, allowing Instructors to create clean looking content topic pages from a variety of page layouts, including two-​column, image, and video.

Note: Applying a template to an existing page will overwrite the content and you will lose your work. It is recommended to create a new file page prior to selecting a document template, then copy and paste content into the new file page.

  1. Select Content.
