New Content Editor

Why use this campaign?

Blackboard has introduced a wide range of simplifications and improvements to the content editor which improve its usability and capabilities. Amongst others, the menu design, file type recognition, and the user experience across a wide range of devices and screen sizes have been improved. Further, it is now possible to paste from Word, Excel, and websites with basic formatting and many more exciting features. This campaign informs users of these changes and suggests best practices on how to use this updated content editor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many institutions find themselves facing similar challenges and need to communicate with their users (instructors and students) to implement something new, or increase usage of a certain tool inside their LMS, for example. We anticipate such scenarios and create EesySoft campaign templates surrounding a wide range of topics. These campaign templates consist of contextualized messages, ensuring that users receive on-demand assistance, accompanied by relevant help articles and videos, to help them achieve their goals. The content is delivered to you in a straight-forward template format. You can preview all of the content to decide if it meets your needs and import it with the click of a button. You are free to customize the campaign by adding, editing, or deleting content that is not applicable to your institution.
