Adding an HTML page to a unit allows you to use text, links, images, and video to make an announcement or explain something to your students. This type of assignment is not typically graded, but you can allow it to be worth a set amount of points in the gradebook for full credit upon completion.

Expand the unit to add content

From your home page, open the unit to which you want to add an HTML page and click Add to this Unit.

Select "Create new"

Click "HTML Page"

Create HTML Page

Enter a Title, Subtitle (if desired), and Directions for your assignment. The Directions will become the body of your assignment, so enter any desired text, images, or links here. Then, click Save.

Set due date and points (optional)

In the Assignment tab, you can optionally set a due date and points in the gradebook. Note that the only grading option is Full credit on completion. This means that as soon as a student opens and views the assignment in LaunchPad, they will get the full amount of points.

After you make any changes here, click Assign.

Click "Done Editing"

Click Done Editing in the upper left corner of the screen. You will see a preview of the HTML page you created.

Click "Home"

Click Home to return to your LaunchPad.
