BLACKBOARD - Copy/Pasting from Microsoft Word into Blackboard
Posted by Michael Sanzari on 01 October 2010 01:05 PM
Blackboard Learn 9.1
The purpose of this article is to provide instructions on how to copy/paste text into the Blackboard properly without formatting errors.
Every time I copy/paste text from a MS Word document, the fomatting is off or submits as a "blank" post.
It is very common to encounter errors when copying test then pasting it into Blackboard. This happens when using the Visual Text Box Editor to add items and folders, set up Discussion Board forums and postings, and create test, survey, and pool questions. This can also occur for students when copying text from a web page, for example, into the Discussion Board.
You should now be able to format the text using the tools in Blackboard and then submit the post without formatting errors.
*For MAC users: please use TextEdit; Move your mouse to the dock and click on TextEdit. Once the text editor opens, you can complete steps 1, 3, 4, and 5.
