Re: Students can edit pages in Canvas.

Sorry for the litany of emails here.

I noticed that if I use the Canvas "Prev" or "Next" button the nav bars do not show up - it is only if I click on the LibreText forward and backward links that the nav bars appear.

Re: Students can edit pages in Canvas.

pbmac
 

Okay - the fact that I was logged into LibreTexts was the cause of that issue. I logged out of LibreTexts and there is not a problem on the Canvas side.

However, I notice that there are still some of the LibreText navigation bars in Canvas:



Students can click on the links and wander around LibreTexts...which isn't necessarily a bad thing - but I pretty much desire they concentrate on the class.

I have noticed that if I go into Canvas Modules (Libretext sections show up as sections of a Module) and select ANY of the Libretext sections the navigation bars are NOT present until you go to the next section.

Any thoughts??
Pat


Students can edit pages in Canvas.

pbmac
 

I have 3 courses that I have exported from LibreTexts, and have imported into Canvas. As I was looking at the Canvas Modules I noticed I could still edit the Titles, and the Page info...I tried this in Student View and the student can still edit my pages. I am not sure why this is, or how to configure Canvas of LibreTexts so that students can't edit the pages in Canvas.

shorter URLs

Robert Belford
 

Hi All,

I am writing my syllabus and am trying to figure a shorter URL for
LibreText pages (other than using a hashcode URL shortener). Is there
one?

Cheers,
Bob

There were a few hardcoded urls that were not automatically migrated when I updated the Mindtouch global variables for GLmol and JSmol a few days ago. I can confirm that both the Generator and Caffeine page are again operating normally.

Pat:

The timeframe for uploading a text to the Download center is no more than one week and that is meant to be where you can get the LMS files and print files etc. The red LMS button is not the go to place, but I understand it is the only thing you likely have for your new text.

Let me get back to you with a way forward (and we will fix that message too).

Cheers,

Delmar

Re: Why am I not logged in??

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

Pat:

We don't have the SSO mechanism in play yet. So, each library has its own authentication. You have an account on the engineering library, but not an account on the chemistry library. The SSO will be used to fix that so one account will work for all. If you need an account(s) on other libraries, let me know and we can set it(them) up for you.

Is GL mol down? Shanzi was trying to get it to work, and it did not,
but when I went to the demo page, it was also not working.

Re: Remix or Edit??

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

Pat:

I am still updating the chapters; the images are not in properly in all the pages (and only addressing the first 12 chapters).

You can certainly remix now and if you translude those pages in the remixing, the updates to the bookshelves content will be reflected in your customized remix. If you fork, then not.

The problem is that this text has a ND clause on it, which means the best you (or the LibreTexts team) can do for you is allow you to reorganize the content. But, you cannot edit the content (other than superficial typsetting). To do more we/you need to get permission from the original author or (I think) if we fork your remix and hide it from public view, I think you can customize it for your purposes for your class- I need to review the license careful before I give the thumbs up for that.

Sorry, the ND clause is a real pain in the arse for the OER community and conflicts greatly with the LibreTexts philosophy.

Regards,

Delmar

I do NOT want to use all of the material that is in the original book. So, is it better to edit the book that was imported - OR - remix it grabbing ONLY the sections that I want to use in my course, and edit those as needed?

Re: Remix or Edit??

Dorte Madsen
 

It sounds like you should do a remix and only grab the sections you want to use. 

Generally, if you are making edits to a book that are generally considered improvements to the book you edit the original. Examples could be fixing mistakes, adding clarifying explanations, cleaning up language, adding more relevant examples and getting rid of outdated one, etc. If you are editing the book to fit your class or pedagogical style you make a new book/remix.

It is set up on a weekly basis it will be up soon. If you need it faster, we can force it.

Re: some weird code

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

We have content from many different sources. While the top viewing level may be nearly the same, the underlying HTML often has a lot of variety. The new bot system is slowly working on transforming all the underlying HTML into a consistent format. This is also useful for ensuring accessibility.

However, this will take time. Upshot: Erase junk that makes no sense; we have a fairly limited code set.

It was goofing up the ability of the WYSIWYG to end at the end of a
