Changes to the Bb Learn Content Editor

Blackboard Learn recently changed the content editor where you type text, insert videos, etc.

Top changes include:

  • Paste web links from your browser into the content editor, and...they work!
  • Check accessibility
  • Insert embed codes and even source code
  • Preview before you submit 

A few things that could use improvement: 

  • Black text showing up as gray, and you manually have to reformat the text.
  • They buttons are all monochromatic and not easily distinguishable. 

See legend below.
