WorldClassRoom Tech Tip

Rich Content Editor

The Rich Content Editor (RCE) in WorldClassRoom (Canvas) was updated recently. Instructors have access to the RCE when creating and editing Assignments in Canvas, as well as when creating and editing Announcements, Quizzes, Discussions, and Pages. Students have access to the RCE when replying to discussions and essay questions in a quiz. With the Rich Content Editor, students and instructors can format and align text, create lists, and insert images, audio, or video.

The main feature of this recent upgrade is improved support for creating, editing, and deleting tables. Users can add table cells as well as merge and split the cells without having to switch to the HTML Editor. In addition, rows can be added, or copied and pasted into the table.

Beneath the RCE window, users can now view HTML elements for any selected content. This feature is helpful for users who have some background in the use of HTML and want to verify their content placement.
Updates to Canvas are implemented every three weeks. Updates are posted in the FAQs within WorldClassRoom and in the Canvas Community.
