Summer upgrade preview: The text box editor

The text box editor is ubiquitous through the VLE and it is getting a major overhaul this summer when we upgrade the VLE. The simple, clean interface can be expanded to show more functionality or set to fill the screen to give you more room for your thoughts. There is far better support for those who copy and paste from word, much stabler formatting options and some really cool new stuff such as undo functionality, enhanced options for embedding images and custom rollovers and even the ability to record and embed webcam video into your text. The new text box editor will be distributed throughout the VLE, not just in content items but also blogs, journals and discussion boards so students will benefit from the improvements too.
