Text Box Editor ScreenshotAs a Mac user, it’s heartening to see Blackboard support the WYSIWYG editor (called the “Text Box Editor“) for Safari users. Windows/Mac Chrome users get support too. It’s also pleasantly easy to toggle the text box editor on/off if for whatever reason you have troubles with it.

Blackboard’s help page on this editor is especially amusing towards the end:

Differences Between Text Editor and Text Editor

The Text Editor and Text Editor both allow the entry of formatted text in Blackboard Learn. The Text Editor allows Plain Text, Smart Text and HTML formatting. The Text Editor allows users to edit content in an interface resembling a word processor, and perform basic HTML functions without knowledge of any HTML.”
