What is Emble?

Emble is an editing tool in Canvas that provides new and exciting page design and layout options without needing any knowledge of HTML or code. Emble provides additional options such as:

  • banners
  • callout boxes
  • columns
  • buttons
  • dividers

Emble as a tool offers a means to apply visually sound design elements throughout Canvas pages that both compliments the RMIT brand and considers the Digital Accessibility Framework, yet allows individuality to be applied where needed.
