About the Editor
The editor appears in most places where you can add content, including documents, discussions, tests, messages and more. You may add and format text, embed images, attach files, upload videos via Katutura Media, and insert equations, links, and tables.
Work with Text
Use the text editor to format your text style, font, size, color, etc. You may add tables, format your paragraph, add lists (bullets, numbering, etc.), and more
For the best results, type your text directly into the editor and use the text options to add your formatting. You may copy and paste from a document (such as Word or Google), but this may cause formatting issues including jumbled fonts, odd spacing, sizing issues, etc. If you do copy and paste into myLesley, use the Clear Format option to remove the formatting. You will then need to reformat your content using the editor.
Use the Insert/Edit Link button in the editor to add links.
Enter or paste the link URL and add the link text. As a best practice, when creating a link you should ensure that your link conveys clear and accurate information about the destination. For example, instead of linking to the text Click here, include the full title of the destination page, such as Lesley Technical Support Site.
Upload Files and Attachments
To upload a file (ex Word document, PDF) in the editor, click on the Attachment button.
Select a file from your computer. You will then be prompted to edit the file attributes.
Click Save to save your changes and attach your file.
You may add both online images and upload images to your course. Please note that once your image uploads you cannot edit or resize. Edit or resize your image before uploading to myLesley.
Add Online Images
If your image lives online (including cloud storage), click the Add Content button and then select Image.
Type or paste your URL and include a brief description of the image in the Alternative Text box.
Upload Images From Your Computer
To upload an image from your computer, click the Attachment button.
Select a file from your computer. You will then be prompted to edit the file attributes. Give your image a display name and alternative text. You may also decide whether to display the file as an attachment (people will need to click it to view) or display it inline (on the page with the text).
Click Save to save your changes and add your image.
Add Video Content
The best way to share videos will depend on whether it is a video you own or have created or a video that others have created.
Add Videos You Created
Use Kaltura Media to upload media that you have already created or create a new video by recording from your webcam. Click on the Insert Content button in the editor. From the list, select Content Market.
This will open up the Content Market. In the Institution Tools section, select Kaltura Media.
This will open Kaltura Media. Click the Add New button to upload a new video or create a new webcam recording. Or select a previously uploaded video from your list by clicking the Embed button next to your video.
Add Videos from the Web
To upload an online video, click on the Insert Content button in the editor. From the list, select Media.
This will bring up a window. In the Media URL area, paste the URL of your video. In the Alternative Text area, add some information about your video. Click Insert to insert your video. The video will display inline with your content.
