Creating a Simple HTML Page
Creating a simple web page is easy using the built-in HTML editor in ANGEL.
The WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor allows you to create web
pages without having to know HTML. The Fast!page HTML Editor is available
wherever a text area is found within ANGEL. The editor is available for both
faculty and students. It is found in many places within ANGEL including the
email tool and discussion forums. This tutorial will focus on some of the simple
formatting of text such as centering, changing the color, bolding, and changing
the size of the text. The tutorial will also demonstrate how to create a bulleted
list and add a horizontal rule to separate the text.
