LaTeX

LaTeX

You can use LaTeX to write formulae in Brightspace. Note that MathType is not supported. If you want to upload documents containing MathType text, it is recommended to insert the text as images, or save the documents as .PDF before uploading.

  1. When using the text editor, click on the Show All Components icon. This will reveal the LaTeX editor, which is indicated with an upper-case sigma (Σ)symbol.
  2. Click to expand the drop-down menu right next to the sigma symbol and choose LaTeX equation from the list.The LaTeX equation editor will open. Note that it might take a few seconds to load. Once opened, you can start typing your formula. There are also guidelines provided: simply click on Which LaTeX commands are supported? to view them. As you type, a preview will appear just below the text box.
  3. Once complete, click on Insert.
  4. You can now continue writing the rest of the text in the text editor and click Save and Close, or Save to save it.

When using the Brightspace editor it is possible to use inline rendering of LaTeX formulas. This works in any place where the Brightspace editor is used, for example quizzes, assignments and content topics. You can use the LaTeX syntax in the editor directly without the need for the separate formula editor. An example of the way this works can be seen below. The first image is the view of the Brightspace editor and the second image is how the text, of a content item in this case, is displayed to users.

The \( \) syntax renders the LaTeX formula within the sentence and the dollar signs center the formula.
