HTML is the foundation of the web. HTML stands for “HyperText Markup Language” and is the language used to tell the web browser what information in your web pages is all about. In consequence, HTML makes it easy to define paragraphs, headers, images, links and other important data within your web pages.

If you’re building a house, you don’t start with painting. Instead, you grab the bricks and mortar you need to construct a strong foundation. In web development, HTML (HyperText Markup Language) serves a similar purpose to the bricks and mortar of a building. No matter how fancy your website or LMS course might be, you might need it to craft a sturdy underlying structure, or just facilitate the creation of your course materials.
