Interesting things happening...why??

pbmac
 

I am curious about 2 things.
1) I think this is similar to what was brought up a couple of weeks ago. My images are missing when I access the pages in Chrome on a Mac or on Widows.I have no problem seeing the images https://eng.libretexts.org/Courses/Delta_College/C_-_Data_Structures/02%3A_C_Pointers/2.01%3A_Pointer_Review   in LibreText. I compiled and exported to Canvas, and initially they were fine (I think) - but this morning the image did NOT appear. It was still present in LibreText, and in Chrome on Linux. But MacOS and Windows 10 both did not display the image. Once I went in and simply added the image back it shows up in the MacOS and Windows browser
 
2) did the default color for H1 switch to orange?? All of my H1 are now orange

Thanks

Re: Alternative to Mathpix

Joshua Hori
 

Breanna,

 

Sign up with your .edu account and you get another 100 snips, for a total of 150 snips per month for free…over 2 accounts though.

 

Another alternative would be InftyEditor, but there is a price for it.

 

I remember benetech having a web based tool for submitting math images, but it converts the math to MathML, not LaTeX…more complex math code.

 

Joshua

 

Hi everyone,

There are a lot of math equations on the project I am working on. I have previously been using the Mathpix snipping tool to convert the equations to Latex.  However, it seems there are only 50 free snips per month.  Are there alternatives to the Mathpix snipping tool?

Thanks,

Breanna Yang

Let me hold off on this until this evening.

The images I see are not wrapped in a <figure> block and they need to for the caption to be semantically connected to the image. Some are not separated within <p></p>, which may cause some issues.

and

your images are right or left justified, so I need to mock up a new figure class and test it out before I do a massive change on your book (that can go awry if poorly done).

ok. Quesitons:

Which book?
Which chapters (all is easier)?
Do you want a dynamic Figure number added? (you have to manually number them, but they are synced to the title number so you can rearrange pages without having to deal with Figure numbers (or equations)

I will just add a

<figcaption>text</figcaption>

before all </figure> text in your book/chapters. If you already have a caption in a page, then you have to clean up.

Runnin the bot would be AWESOME!!! Save me a boat load of time that way. I can add them from here on, but was not to excited about wading through the first half of the book and manually doing that.

ok. Go to Elements and templates...


then select the first on the list


and insert template. That will copy the code you want. You can reverse engineer it. If you wan, I can also use the bot to add the sub-block in all your figure block on you book with dummy text and you edit.

Definitions:

  • Captions: Texts under an image to be wrapped together within a <figure> block. This is indicated via <figcaption</figcaption> sub-blocks. When you add a Figure template (under elements), the complete block is added.
  • Attributions: We use a "thin attributions" format for images. (License; Author vai Source) after the caption text (same line). Ideally, License, Author and Source are hyperlinks. Our bot can add the hyperlink to the caption if you use standard Creative Commons license forma (e.g., CC BY-SA 4.0 or CC BY-NV-SA 4.0); no need to be too rigid as we will get logical permutations. We will start this bot in a month or so
  • Alt-texts: Description for the visually impaired. This is a 140 character text added to the img code. You can access this by double clicking on the image to get the image properties and pasted in. Alternatively, you can add to the HTML directly.
Ideally, you will want all three of these. Which one are you asking about and I can try to make it easy for you.


Request for Instructor Analysis/Interview from UC Davis Center for Educational Effectiveness

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

A request on behalf of Ayanna Wade from UC Davis who is involved in the assessment/analytics thrust of the project.
Delmar


My name is Ayanna Wade. I am working on behalf of the UC Davis Center for Educational Effectiveness to study student engagement and outcomes in courses using the LibreTexts resource.

I am writing because completing this analysis requires help from instructors who design and teach these courses, preferably over multiple terms. I need help with the following:

1) Access to instructor data to analyze how instructor LibreText usage relates to course structure and student usage
2) Interviews with instructors to get a narrative view of course structure to relate back to usage data
(Providing data should only take a few emails. I predict the interviews to take about 30 minutes each with follow-up emails only as needed.)

With this information I hope to make more meaningful observations from course data that could improve the use of LibreText for both students and instructors. Please send me an email at aawade@... if you would be available to help.

Thank you for your time,

Ayanna

Caption an image

pbmac
 

I need to put attributions on all my images/figures in my doc. I attempted to go into HTML and enter the <figure> tag, but that did not work. 

Is there a secret to adding captions to figure/images in LibreText?  It is a requirement for the project I am working on.

Thanks
Pat


Re: Missing figures

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

I don't think this is related to either the Wikipedia hotlinking block or the hypothesis block. I need to delve deeper into the revisions to come up with an answer... perhaps in a week or two. Let me know if this happens again.


Re: Missing figures

Kathryn Haas
 

Josh and Delmar,

Thank you! It is fixed now! You don't think this is related to the same problem we're having with hypothesis? (ie the URL change in the Saint Mary's pages?)


Re: Missing figures

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

I am unsure of what is going on. I don't see any edits to the page by anyone or a bot. I can check with Mindtouch to see if there is a sync problem with the mstatic database holding the images and the database holding the text. It is a long shot.

When the images are rendered, they are beautiful.


Re: Missing figures

Josh Halpern
 

Hi Kathryn,

It looked fine on the bookshelf so I copied the URLs for the images over into your course shell. Looks OK now

Josh

Done. You are at 109 pages.I am aware of the <pre> code that was not introduced into the PDF output so we need to fix.
I just need to make a "code box" template and I can run a global edit to introduce it with little pain on your side.

I recommend the following minor additions:

1: Thumbnails, but that is obvious
2: A short summary of the book on the front page (a paragraph). This would be also added to the page summary of the
3. If you want more, then you can add a "About the Book" page in the Front Matter
4: An "About the Author(s)" page in the Front matter.
