Buzz in Practice

Use Content Templates to improve branding, functionality, and authoring

  • Updated:

Content Templates allow authors to create activities using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS with fields that can be opened and edited using Buzz's rich text editor. This allows teachers and other authors to use and easily make changes to these activities without losing formatting and functionality, or having to learn an external tool.

These videos will walk you through an example Content Template and allow you to follow along. While the videos below are broken apart by section, you can watch the entire video unedited (42:23).
