WEBINAR: New Rich Content Editor in Canvas

Hello Faculty,

On December 16, 2020, we will be rolling out the New Rich Content Editor in Canvas. The New Rich Content Editor enhances the content creation experience in Canvas. It will be a bit of an adjustment for all of us but we think you will love it once you have used it.

We will be offering a live training on the new features Monday, December 7th at 1:30 pm. This Webinar is via Zoom, please check the eLearning Resources for Faculty announcement for the Zoom room link. We hope you can join us.

The following enhancements are included with this feature update:

  • The Rich Content Editor expands to the full width of the browser and can also be expanded into full-screen mode
  • The toolbar includes a condensed, more intuitive look
  • Toolbar menus are grouped by common icons and interactions
  • The content sidebar only displays when linking to other parts of Canvas, accessing Canvas files, or accessing uploaded media
  • Image and media additions include drag and drop; images include an Unsplash search and content auto-scaling
  • When content in a browser window is long enough to require a scroll bar, the Rich Content Editor menu bar is fixed at the top of the browser window. Users can scroll the length of the browser page and manage content in the Rich Content Editor without having to scroll back up the page to access the menu.
  • The Keyboard shortcut, Accessibility Checker, and HTML Editor icons have moved to the bottom of the editor next to the word count. Additionally, the Rich Content Editor window can be resized using the Move handle below the window, and the window can be expanded to full screen.

We will be recording the training and posting in the eLearning Resources for Faculty Canvas course.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at eLearning@shoreline.edu.
