For use in Blackboard and Other Online Applications
When we convert Word documents that contain images into HTML files, Word creates an entire new folder containing the file and images. When we attempt to load the newly converted file into Blackboard, we are forced to link to just one file, so the images cannot be referenced. Below are the steps for creating the HTML file, zipping and uploading the document into Blackboard.
(Images taken from MS Word 2000 running on Windows XP)
a. Choose FILE-SAVE AS from the menu
Note that following step one, MS Word created a separate folder in the same location you saved your web page. This folder contains all the images in your new web page document. The automatically generated folder name is "<web page name>_files" (i.e. Logo_files in this example).
Saved web page
Images folder created by Word
a. Create a zip file in the same location of your web page and images folder.
You can now view your content as a web page with the images in tact.
