Customize Lectora's Table of Contents with Visited-page and Chapter Icons by Greg Gardner : Learning Solutions Magazine

Customize Lectora's Table of Contents with Visited-page and Chapter Icons by Greg Gardner : Learning Solutions Magazine | Instructional Design and Online Learning | Scoop.it

Internal clients often ask me to include a table of contents (TOC) in Lectora-based learning. Usually this involves identifying, on the TOC display itself, whether or not the learner has visited a page. The clients also almost always want other features, such as the company logo.

Tailor-made TOCs

Ayesha Habeeb Omer, chief operating officer at CommLab India, wrote a wonderful blog entry on the Lectora site, showing how to customize the Lectora TOC. This is well worth reading—I certainly gained a lot from it.

Applying Ayesha’s ideas to my previous attempt, I was able to further modify the Lectora TOC, creating a much more user-friendly set of instructions. This reusable approach to customizing the TOC adds a few actions to identify visited pages. It also modifies, post-publishing, some of the JavaScript and HTML that Lectora creates, to complete the transformation.

The basic steps to customize the table of contents are as follows (In the next subsection, I will walk you through each one, with screenshots):

Add TOC in Lectora
Identify the HTML name of the TOC object
Add button to toggle visibility of the TOC
Publish your lesson to HTML
Find the following files in the root folder of your published lesson:
trivantis-toc.js
tocXXX.htm, where XXX is the HTML name of your TOC object
Make changes to trivantis-toc.js, tocXXX.html, and page-visited actions in Lectora
Publish to HTML again
Replace published trivantis-toc.js and tocXXX.html files with modified files
Add appropriate image/icon/graphic files to the images folder
View results

22 Beautiful Portfolio Websites To Inspire You, Me And Lee

22 Beautiful Portfolio Websites To Inspire You, Me And Lee | Instructional Design and Online Learning | Scoop.it

From time to time, we like to showcase how designers and studios are presenting their work.

Marty Note
When I need inspiration I look at design, just pure design. Design is a palette cleanser. It shakes the assumptions out, when it is good, or moves you to change ever so slightly. These designs are great cleansers since they strive for design's most pure source - impact, statement and connection.

Curating Shock Of The New - Scoopit Revolutions Analysis [Report] | Instructional Design and Online Learning | Scoop.it

Finding ways to measure curation that is fair across multiple dimensions of value is a bear. I wrote this piece to share one way to create analytics to normalize out time and other impacts and effects. The idea is both simple and complex (like most things Internet marketing). The simple part is creating an apples to apples compairsion. The hard part is actually doing it (lol).

News Izzui, E-Learning App for Facebook, Is Unveiled at TechCrunch Disrupt

News Izzui, E-Learning App for Facebook, Is Unveiled at TechCrunch Disrupt | Instructional Design and Online Learning | Scoop.it

Izzui is a social media app uniquely focused on E-Learning in Facebook. Izzui made its debut to the technology start-up community at TechCrunch Disrupt on Monday, September 10th, in San Francisco. TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the most anticipated technology conferences of the year.

As a Facebook app for end-to-end online learning collaboration, Izzui permits anyone with a Facebook account to teach, learn and share. Izzui allows users to create and post online content and presentations, invite friends to check them out and also subscribe to other people’s Izzui posts. Users can also rate, evaluate and comment on their Izzui subscriptions, as well as share their course activities on their Facebook profile. Izzui brings social learning and E-learning to the wider public. The website www.izzui.com/ provides additional information and a link that will take visitors to the actual Facebook app.

Previously garnering attention on Facebook in its beta phase, Izzui is structured so that users can quickly go to either the Learn or Teach option. Under Learn, Facebook users can browse through courses by topic. Recently added topics include Daily tips; Education; Fashion; Food and Drinks; Games; Health; Languages; Lifestyle; Management and Business; Music; Sports; and Technology. Users can also find courses by searching “All” courses or by Author.

What further differentiates Izzui from other Facebook applications is the option for users to create courses collaboratively. By clicking on the “Teach” tab, users will be walked seamlessly through QuickLessons, a professional authoring tool to create courses, using the platform for free. In Izzui, course authors are able to select whether they want to design their course for Mobile or Desktop publishing.

Say Goodbye to Record Stores and Physical Albums, Are Books Next? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Say Goodbye to Record Stores and Physical Albums, Are Books Next? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Instructional Design and Online Learning | Scoop.it
Physical record sales are declining. Record stores may soon cease to exist thanks to digital music and unlimited live-streaming services.

 

Marty Note
The Havoc our digital revolution has waged on the music industry is sad but instructive. Bits and bytes are IN and STUFF is OUT. Here are the revolution's next targets NOT coming to a store near you:

 

* books.

* Movies.
* Magazines

* Real estate listings

* travel brochures

* College catalogs

* catalogs (wave bye to Victoria's Secret)

* Airline tickets (already half gone)

* Paper money (already half gone)

 

The litmus test is if it requires a printer wave bye since it will be increasingly cost prohibitive to print anything (eventually).

Marty
