Inserting an image in My Studies
This tutorial has moved to <a href="">SharePoint Online &gt; Digital Tools &gt; My Studies FAQs</a> (at the bottom of the My Studies page which can be found in the Digital Tools A-Z). <!--In the past, one was able to simply copy an image into one's computer's clipboard, and then 'paste' that image into things like Announcements,  Items, or Content Folders, etc. This actually did not always work, and was quite buggy... Also, the resultant image was not very accessible as it would lack alt-text. The latest updates to browsers, and updates to My Studies have begun 'blocking' the pasting of images in content-areas in My Studies. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2112" src="" alt="Screenshot of an error message in the content window in My Studies" width="551" height="156" /></a> This guide will explain what you are meant to do to insert images into My Studies, and also have them be accessible to your viewers. So to add an image in My Studies in announcements, items, etc: first choose the thing that you're inserting in My Studies (for this example I'm inserting a Content Folder) <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2113" src="" alt="screencapture of a person building content and selecting the content folder option" width="483" height="291" /></a> Click on the Add Content button (plus-symbol button) in the text area. (If you don't see this button, you may have to expand your menu using the 'three dots' button) <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2114" src="" alt="Screencapture of the Add Content button which is always the last button in the My Studies content menu" width="476" height="247" /></a> Choose the top choice - Insert Local File <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2115" src="" alt="Screencapture of the top choice in the menu, Insert Local Files" width="461" height="272" /></a> Go search for the image you wish to insert on your computer.... Once you've found the image, select it, and click 'Open' <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2116" src="" alt="Screencapture of the file-window on a Macintosh computer with the open button highlighted." width="579" height="295" /></a> Once the image is inserted in the text area, right-click on the image with your mouse, and choose the "Image" sub-menu option. <p data-wp-editing="1"><a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2117" src="" alt="Screencapture of an image file embedded in the My Studies content area, with a pop-up menu due to the image being right-clicked. And the Image choice is highlighted." width="415" height="308" /></a></p> Enter an alternative description (alt-text) in the field, and click on Save. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2118" src="" alt="Screencapture of alt text being added in the field provided, and the save button being highlighted" width="445" height="268" /></a> Now that you've inserted your image, click on Submit. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-2119" src="" alt="Screencapture of the Submit button in My Studies being highlighted" width="456" height="280" /></a> Note, that Blackboard Ally will 'read' your image, and give you a dark-green gauge signifying that the image is accessible for viewers. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2120" src="" alt="Screencapture of the green-gauge of joy from Blackboard Ally due to the image being properly inserted and alt-text-ed." width="696" height="473" /></a> -->
