Using special characters to answer questions in Passport


Passport provides a special characters keyboard which can be utilized when answering an assignment that requires text input from the student. This is beneficial to students who are not familiar with using their device keyboards to type special characters.

This keyboard can be accessed from the ebook waffle menu. A click on the special character will insert it at the cursor , or characters can be dragged and dropped from the keyboard anywhere into the text.

This article provides detailed instructions to students in using these special characters. To open the special characters options:

Click the waffle icon at the bottom of the page:
