Students: Format Text in Discussion Forums

Discussion forums feature a simple interface for entering text that is just for forum posts.

This quick entry interface allows you to enter text just as you do when you're using Facebook or other social media. You can use standard keyboard shortcuts for simple formatting (bold, italic, and underline), but for any embellishments beyond that (inserting links or images, adding bullets, creating a table, etc.), you need to select the advanced editor.

Once you open this editor, you'll be able to use all of the formatting options available in our normal HTML editor as shown below.
