Cutting and Pasting from Existing Text

Many instructors have course materials from previous semesters. It is possible to incorporate this material without retyping or reformatting anything. In this example, you will open the Syllabus file that already exists in Microsoft Word, and copy the content into the syllabus for the CourseSite.

First, locate and open the syllabus file in Microsoft Word or another word processing program.

Cutting and Pasting HTML Text

Content that has been HTML coded can also be added into a course. However, there are a few items that you must do to insure the text appears correctly.

For more detailed information on working with text, please see the associated section in the Instructor’s Guide.
