Fall Course Pages and a New RCE

If you're teaching in the 2020 Fall term you can now find your course page(s) on Quercus. Also, Canvas has now released their long awaited upgrade to the Rich Content Editor. This is a feature option that can be turned on in your course and accessed via announcements, pages, and assignments. The new Rich Content Editor is an update to the previous editor and provides a condensed, more intuitive toolbar that is grouped by common icons and interactions.Click here for more information about the new RCE.
