The Text Editor

The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations and hyperlinks, tables, and attach different types of files to create content. The editor appears throughout the system as the default editor.

The same editor is used whenever a user is adding text or content, e.g. when a tutor is adding content to a course, or a learner is updating a blog or discussion board entry.

Note, the first time you use the text editor you may not see the complete suite of options as shown in the screenshot below. If so, click the chevron button on the far right of the row of icons to maximise your view of the editor.
