Content delivery is one of the most important aspects of building an engaging learning experience. Content requires structure, aesthetics and support for several different media types to convey learning material in an effective way. Today we're releasing our
new rich-text editorthat comes with a long list of new features and improvements! 🎉
😍 Inline activity editor
The biggest change we made was to move the activity description out from the settings page and made the actual activity front page editable. You no longer need to switch between edit and preview mode after each content update. Now, what you see is what you get! 👀
📝 New text formatting options
The editor also comes packed with new formatting options. Except from the standard formatting options like heading levels, bold and italic text, numbered and bulleted lists we have added support for:
- Text highlights and text colors
- Text strike-through
- Inline code
- Horisontal lines
🖼 Image controls
We have also added better controls for images. You can now align images, adjust size, add captions and alt text for students using a screen reader.
Create and style tables easily with our tables add-on.
📹 Media embeds
We now support a wide range of providers to be embedded into your content. For video providers like YouTube and Vimeo, simply paste in the URL and it will automatically embed the video.
⌨️ Keyboard shortcuts
If you're a power user and knows your way around markdown, you can use keyboard shortcuts to quickly format your text.
The new rich-text editor has replaced our old one and is available for use in the following places:
- Activity content description
- Rich-text submissions
- Discussion topics and comments
- Public course page description
