Blackboard Paste From Word Mash Up

Are you frustrated by the need to reformat content every time you copy from Word and paste into Blackboard? If so, we have some exciting news for you!

ITS has implemented a new tool in Blackboard called ‘Mashup’. Mashup provides an easy way to paste text from any Microsoft Word document into a Blackboard text editor without including the Microsoft-specific markup.

You can access the Mashup function from any Text Editor within Blackboard. It will ensure your text appears exactly as it appeared in your original Word document.

For further information on this new Blackboard function, please refer to the ‘Learning Systems Technical Support’ (LSTS) course site accessible from the Learning Hub <link to: https://sso-cas.rmit.edu.au/rmitcas/login?service=https://learninghub.rmit.edu.au/lhub-portal/logon/casenter.do>.
