The Content Editor

The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations and hyper links, tables, and attach different types of files to create content.

To learn more about Content Editor, visit Blackboard's Content Editor.

Right click and Paste does not work in the textbox. Paste copied text into the textbox using the keyboard command Ctrl V.

Consider using a text editor such as Notepad to remove formatting before you paste into the textbox.

Using iFrames

The content editor allows you to add content directly via HTML code. This includes the use of iFrames. For security reasons only certain websites are allowed to be embedded via an iFrame. Please see the allowed list below. If you would like to embed other reputable websites please log a DIT support ticket with your request.

Allowed iFrame embedded websites:

  • CSU SCCI Media Service
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • SlideShare
