You will see the Text Editor virtually everywhere on myCourses, and you can expect to use it almost every time you submit an assignment. If you have ever used a word processing program, the functions should look familiar to you.
Although you can type directly into the text editor, it is highly recommended that you write your response outside of myCourses and then paste it into the Text Editor. This is to protect you from potentially losing your work if there is a problem posting or if your internet service is interrupted for any reason. * Be aware that you may run into formatting issues if you copy/paste directly from Microsoft Word into the Blackboard editor. We highly recommend to copy/paste into another application such as Notepad (PC) or Text Edit (Mac) to remove formatting and then paste into the Blackboard text editor and use the formatting functions of the Blackboard text editor.
