Description

You can put Microsoft Word documents directly up into Bb Learn, but that requires students to download and open them in Word. But MS Office is not free to students and some won't have it, while others will have a version too old to open your documents. While there are free alternatives like Open Office or Google Docs, the simplest solution is to convert your Word documents to web pages that open directly in the browser. This also allows you to edit your documents right in the LMS rather than having to download, edit, and re-upload every time you want to make a minor change. But pasting text directly from Word can cause lots of formatting problems. The Paste from Word mashup tool in Blackboard fixes these problems.

Objectives

  • Use the formatting tool in Word
  • Build a sample web page in Word
  • Understand how to properly name and save files in Word to make them work on the web.
  • Review the Paste from Word mashup tool in Bb Learn
