Printing Options for Blackboard

The new semester has started and with that comes an abundance of course materials, syllabi and other information in Blackboard that instructors or students may want to print.  There is not currently a print feature in Blackboard, however, you do have a couple of printing options.

The first way is to copy and paste text from Blackboard into a Word document. Once the text is in Word (or another text editing software), you can print it.  This method is a little cumbersome, however it does allow you to format and edit the text before you print it.  Learn more about copy and pasting to print.

The second option is only available using Chrome.  This browser allows you to print a selected section of text.   

Here's how to print from Chrome:

1. Highlight the text you want to print and use the keyboard shortcut "control + p" on a PC or "command +p" on a Mac to print.

2. In the print menu, under "Options" you need to click "More Settings" check the box that says "selection only."

3. Chrome shows you a preview of your document so you can make sure all the needed text is selected. You are ready to print!
