Example Module from a Slide Importer

Module by: Testing Account. E-mail the author

Based on: Adding Multimedia to Your Connexions Content by Connexions, Adan Galvan, Mark Husband, Daniel Williamson

Summary: This is just an example to show how a module might look that was created from a tool specialized to help authors embed a set of slides, publish them on a slide sharing site, and also make them available in source format so they can be adapted.

Introduction

These slides are meant to go with the Connexions authoring guide. Students can use the slides on their own and faculty can use them to teach workshops on authoring Connexions' modules.

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
