Seeburger, Paul (Mathematics)
 

That's a good idea, Josh.  But I'd recommend having a separate page where we could place links to peer-reviewed books that are substantial improvements (or alterations) of the original books.  It would be nice to have these available by topic/course, although perhaps it might merit a separate area within each library.

 

I also believe that as we continue to build the libraries, we really need a good way to organize and disseminate new contributions faculty make as they add their own material to supplement various textbooks.  I have begun to place links to my new material in Bookshelves/Calculus/Supplemental Modules area, separated there by topic.

 

Other faculty contributors can certainly do this too, but it would help to have a plan to encourage this sort of thing to make these contributions more readily accessible to others using the library.

Why?

No something is wrong. Can you hit refresh and save your Remix Map. Then publish again. If this happens again, please send me your remixing map and we will troubleshoot on our side.

Thanks, I got in and hit publish.  Is it normal to take more than 8368 seconds (over two hours) to publish a remix.  The time remaining still says "Calculating".  Should I give up and start over or should I be patient?
Thanks,
Larry

Something to think about, perhaps each book on the Bookshelves should have a pointer to good forked remixes

Hi, Larry!


As Delmar indicated, the Remixer seems to be working pretty well, and you can choose to copy-fork the whole book if you wish.  If you go to edit a page in your created book and it allows you to edit the text directly, this means that it is in your forked version and your edits there will not affect the source in the Bookshelves area.

I am trying to remix a textbook (introductory statistics) and then go to the individual pages and add content to a page.  Could someone please explain how to do this?  My goal is to take the static book and bring in multimedia and interactivity.  It is important that I work on a remixed copy rather than on the actual book.  I am pretty sure that this is possible in remixer 2.0's Forker, but I am not even sure if that is up yet as the default.

Re: #remix #remix

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

Larry:

If you remix with the Copy-Fork option, then all your pages will be forked and you can edit then directly (see image below). If you made them with copy-tranclude (the default), then you can use the forker on each page you want to edit to switch it from transclude to forking mode. This section of the Construction Guide can tell you how to proceed:

The remixer v1.0 is a one time thing. The edits are done afterward. The remixer 2.0 will allow for adding new pages/chapters into existing books, but to edit the pages, you need to do it manually.

It depends on what you are doing.

The Remix is stored in your cookies, it is not associated with your account. The new version of the remixer that will be released very soon (it is in beta right now) allows you to save your remix and a file so you can share it between computers and with other people.

<figure> code

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

I have been asked to explain the significance (impact) of the "new <figure> system" that some of you have noticed on the platform recently.

The <figure> system is the HTML5 code (read that as new/future standard) for semantic representation of images. This allows us to tie in the figure caption to the figure so that they cannot be broken (e.g., by a page break in printing PDFs), which is the primary reason we adopted it. It has several pluses too. It acts as a <div> that we can control over the entire site via CSS which allows for a standardization - this applies to the <figcaption> text that is tied to the <figure> code. It also provides a semantic background for the image so that google and others can tie the figcaption to the figure. We have something similar for each attachment, but this is in the html code directly. That means it is good for SEO and it is where the future lies with online publishing (i.e., most of the web).

I added a modify version of this text with images to the Construction Guide:
