Page Layout Templates for HTML Editor

    Blackboard has a great HTML editor that allows users to create varied page layouts for each course item. However, adding images and accompanying text adjacent to each other can be a nightmare in the early stages of development. At the moment, Blackboard requires users to create a one-row, two-column table (with white borders) in which one cell contains the image while the other cell contains the text. Issues with this approach are as follows:

    1. More time needed to create the table and ensure that padding is adequate to adroitly position image and text next to each other.

    2. Table is not page responsive, possess a finite width, and appears with a horizontal scroll bar when screen size is decreased.


    It would be great if Blackboard included a few standard page layout templates within its WYSIWYG (HTML) editor. Such templates should be page responsive and allow users to quickly insert images and text for each course item (like in an easy-to-use website's CMS administrator console). This will ease the page creation process and promote extensive use of images and creative layouts.
