New Rich Content Editor in Canvas

December 23, 2020 at 2:45 pm

Starting today, all UBC Canvas courses will have the New Rich Content Editor enabled. The New Rich Content Editor is a way to add content that can be styled and arranged to integrate text and multimedia together for display in your Canvas course.

The New Rich Content Editor is an update to the previous Canvas Rich Content Editor. Changes in the New Rich Content Editor include toolbar updates to condense and better group the options available, a resizable content editor area to make editing easier, and new media options such as drag-and-drop and auto-scaling to improve content placement. The changes also include an auto-save feature, which adds the ability to restore unsaved edits that have happened in the last hour.

The New Rich Content Editor appears anywhere the previous Rich Content Editor was used in Canvas, including in pages, assignments, and discussions.

More information on this update is available on the Canvas website:
