How do I insert course images into the Rich Content Editor using the Content Selector?
You can use the Content Selector to insert and upload course images into the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).
- If you do not need to upload images, you can embed images using the Rich Content Editor Embed Image functionality.
- In Pages and the Syllabus, the Content Selector sidebar includes visual style updates and content section pagination. However, the overall functionality of the Content Selector throughout Canvas is the same.
