Canvas - New Rich Content (RCE) Editor

How do I turn on the new RCE editor and what are the differences.

It is safe to turn on the RCE editor. Be aware this also will show for your students. So if you turn it on during the semester please communicate with them so they are not surprised by the change. If you don't like the editor you can turn it off up to Jan 1. After Jan 1, 2021 the RCE editor will be turned on and will not be able to be turned off.

Turn on the RCE Editor

  • Go to your Canvas Course
  • Select "Settings > Feature (tab)"
