Blackboard: Content Editor

What is the Content Editor?

The Blackboard Content Editor appears nearly everywhere you can input text - discussion boards, assignments, essay questions, journals, blogs, wikis, and email (only Add content (+) is not present for email). 

There are many reasons to like the updated Content Editor. Adding content has been simplified. In addition, the editor is now responsive so it works better on both hand-held devices and larger screens. There are several improvements for accessibility and some new features. Besides some updated tool icons, there are also some changes in behavior to know about.
