Blackboard users have experienced multiple problems viewing text that has been pasted directly from a Word processor (such as Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc) into Blackboard. This practice has results ranging from text not viewable by students that do not have MS Word installed on their local computer to Universities reporting the corrupting of entire courses. The cause of this issue is the accompanying word processor formatting codes that is included when using the copy/paste feature. These codes MUST be removed prior to pasting into Blackboard.
BPCC strongly recommends that instructor DO NOT paste any word processor documents directly into Blackboard. Please use the following procedure.
