Blackboard Alert:

Blackboard has updated the Rich Content Editor and there is a very noticeable difference in the way the content editor used to look and the new enhanced look. Please take a moment to review the video and included guides to better understand the new features and changes. This release introduces big updates to the content editor in the Original Course View and the Original experience.

Numerous simplifications and improvements include:

  • A single menu to add content that automatically recognizes file types
  • Optimized experience for all devices and screen sizes
  • Better accessibility for both the editor and the content you create. Menus and icons have higher contrast, pop-ups are gone, and an accessibility checker lets you know about accessibility issues as you write
  • Paste content from Word, Excel, and websites with basic formatting and easily remove extra HTML
  • Paste a link in the editor and automatically embed videos and previews
  • Display formatted computer code snippets
