Software for Creating Text Files to Upload to Blackboard
Plain Text Editor Applications
- TextEdit is the built-in RTF text editing application for the Mac OS X system. Save as a Plain Text document, or, if necessary, duplicate a document to save as plain text.
- Text Wrangler - free from Bare Bones Software.
- Notepad with text wrapping turned off works well. Comes with Windows OS. Avoid using word processors, unless first importing the word processing document to Respondus or copy/pasting into a plain text editor. Word processor formatting will interfere with the content.
CSU has a system-wide license for Respondus . Contact BbSupport-at-csustan.edu for information.
