Blackboard: View HTML code

When editing content in Blackboard, occasionally you may need to switch to the underlying HTML Source Code view.

You will need to do this for instance if you want to embed a Stream video or embed a Twitter feed.

It can also be useful if you have any knowledge of HTML and you want to look at the code of an item or announcement to work out why it’s not displaying quite the way you expect.

To view the Source Code

  1. First, make sure that you can see all three rows of the editing toolbar.
    If you can see only one row, click on the two down-arrows on the right to expand the toolbar,Scanned image of the top row of the tool bar with the Expand Toolbar icon highlighted.
