As of August 1, the new Blackboard Content Editor was activated on our server. This content editor is what we used to refer to as the “Virtual Text Box Editor” or ‘text editor’.
I have included two screen shots below to illustrate this new design. Most importantly, by default the content editor has only one row of commands or icons. You must click the little down-arrow in the upper right hand corner to expand the menu to the full four rows.
Below is the expanded menu of commands.
Also very important is the fact that you will no longer need to use the “Paste From Word” mashup! That’s right! They fixed the programming so that you can now paste directly from any WORD document into this new content editor without all of the previous problems with formatting! That’s great news!
