Use the Content Editor to format text, insert equations and tables, attach files and embed multimedia in content areas.
The content editor allows faculty and students to format text, attach files, embed multimedia, and insert equations, hyperlinks and tables. The content editor appears throughout UB Learns in areas such as content areas, learning modules, folders, items, announcements and test questions.
An updated content editor was released on Nov. 6, 2020. The help documents below are for the updated version.
The update includes improvements to existing tools, a new accessibility checker and the ability to display computer code. Some icons have changed (source code is now represented by the <> icon), and the options to embed files, images, videos and mashups are now available by clicking on the plus icon (use the Insert Local Files option for images).
Do not upload video files to your course (plus icon > Insert Local Files).
Instead, use plus icon > Panopto Video or plus icon > YouTube Video.
A useful feature of UB Learns is the ability to embed files from other sources, including UBbox. By embedding documents from UBbox into your UB Learns course, you are able to update documents in real time without having to delete or upload additional files.
