Small Change to News Flashes in Online Courses

July 30, 2009 | 0 Minute Read

The News Flash tool in online courses recently received a small update. Previously, you were quite limited in the formatting you could add to a News Flash. The formatting tools were also notoriously unreliable in anything other than Internet Explorer.

The News Flash tool now uses the same rich text editor that is used in other online course tools such as the Quiz Generator, Course Email tool, and BBS. This provides faculty and TAs with a richer set of formatting tools when posting a News Flash, should they need them.
