Hello, we are excited about any and all improvements to the student iPad app.

We just updated our Student iPad in order to see the updates.  Before we announce it to all our students/staff we are wondering about this one:  "The Rich Content Editor supports image attachments from third-party apps. Images can be attached from a third party app by tapping the Image icon in the Rich Content Editor."

I added a Text Submission Assignment to see if we could add an image from a 3rd party app, but we don't see the Rich Content Editor.
Where does the student see a Rich Content Editor in order to add these images?

Thanks for your help!

NOTE that when updating to this version, students will lose all their Favorited (starred) classes from their Dashboard, and will have to re-favorite.

Hi hildi.pardo@apsva.us,

Students can use the Rich Content Editor when creating a discussion or discussion reply or creating an announcement or announcement reply. Additional updates to individual assignment pages should be included in the 6.3 release for the Student app on iOS. But I do not know if the Rich Content Editor will be included in those changes.
