May 11, 2020 - New Rich Content Editor

On May 11, the Rich Content Editor in Canvas will be upgraded for most users. (Course sites in the Dental School and the Cummings School will begin using the new editor on June 8.) The new editor includes many improvements, including more formatting options, autosaving, a larger editing window, and a condensed, more intuitive toolbar. Users will see the new editor in the Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, and Syllabus tools.

The following tutorial video highlights the major changes and new features of the new editor:

For an extensive walkthrough of all of the changes, see the Canvas Guides for the New Rich Content Editor.  

If you would like to start using the new editor before May 11, you can turn it on in any course site. Here's how to enable the new editor in your Canvas Course.
