Add Pages to Your Course

Why Do This

This feature allows you to create a document/webpage within your CC. The robust HTML text editor allows you to add many different kinds of content to the page, including text, images, links, audio, video, and embed code. You can use a page to provide background information, instructions, a list of URLs or to display multiple images.


  • Opens seamlessly - no need to launch third party software (e.g. Microsoft Word) which some users may not be able to access.
  • Can be accessed by mobile devices, e.g. smartphones (not all smartphones can handle word-processed documents)
  • Much easier and faster to edit.
  • Much more accessible and readily configurable for reading.
