How to use MathJax in Blackboard content
- Go to the area in Blackboard where you want to use LaTeX, and follow the steps needed to edit or create an item
- In the text editor for the item, click the option to edit the HTML, which will cause a pop-up window to appear
- Enter the following code in to the empty HTML box, and then click Update
- In the empty text editor box, write or copy/paste your LaTeX code to create the intended mathematical content, and then click Submit
Please note: MathJax will only respond to the mathematical content; if you would like to format content in addition to populating it via MathJax, that would need to be done with regular HTML commands. Additionally, if you include other portions of basic text in the item, you can use the built-in Blackboard formatting tools to adjust that text.
