How do I add a code snippet in an Ultra course?


The Code Snippet feature supports collaboration and assessment across computing disciplines where participants discuss programming syntax. Instructors and students can author and share computer code in Blackboard’s Content Editor using the Code Snippet tool. Instructors can add code to resources, activity starters, and test questions. Students can add code in discussion replies, journals, and Blackboard assignment submissions. Code is not run, but presented for human readability.

The location of the code snippet tool is shown below. 



11 programming syntaxes are currently identified by the content editor. These are:

  • Python
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Kotlin
  • R
  • PHP
  • Go
  • C
  • Swift
  • C#
  • HTML


The tool is available within most Ultra course content and activities. Here is an example within a document content type:
