Blackboard upgrade – new Content Editor

As part of this summer’s upgrade, Blackboard will have a new content editor. The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations,  video, web links and  tables, and attach different types of files. The editor appears throughout the system, and the new version includes:

  • Better ability to paste from Word and retain formatting
  • Edit box which can be expanded to full screen, and has Preview function
  • Simple & advanced modes for editing. Simple mode just shows basic icons
  • New MathML equation editor

A 2 minute  Blackboard video on the new Content editor is available on YouTube.
