Formatting Content Items in Blackboard [Video]

With new digital accessibility laws taking effect in a few months, it’s a great time to start talking about a few quick changes we can make to help improve our course content.

One of our challenges with Blackboard is that we actually have too many options when it comes to correctly formatting text. The video above helps explain the differences between the formatting dropdown and the styles dropdown so that you will know to use both if you are creating sections or subheadings with your text.

The topics covered in this video refer to the semantic structure of your web content. To learn more about semantic structure in the context of digital accessibility, visit the Web Accessibility In Mind (WebAIM) website.
