Right click on the table for its properties. You will find the answer in there. If you still need assistance, I will address tomorrow.


Table Accessibility #accessibility

Grewal, Mandeep
 

Hello, I have created a table in the Cardiovascular system section. Table 1 was already there; I inserted table 2. I cannot create the top row looking like the top row of table 1. I am also worried that all tables have regular text in the row and column headers. Shouldn't they be special headers like we create in the word document and the Canvas rich textbox? Also, I cannot find the alt text option for the tables. Could you direct me to a resource where I can learn more about Libretext tables? 
Thank you,
Mandeep.

You can download a range of export options under the blue Download button, if the book is compiled by the dev team.

Thanks, Delmar!  This is wonderful!  I didn't think there would be so many examples available.  I will definitely explore the new instance once that's ready.

Anna:

Brian's bookshelves book has the H5P problems embedded formatively:

https://med.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Nutrition/Book%3A_Intermediate_Nutrition_(Lindshield)

It is set summatively in his Campus Hub book (since you have to log in to see the problems and couple to a gradebook).

For Spanish, there are several OERI teams (and a LibreNet team) that have build H5P problems into their texts:

Caren Parish and others is working on a French text:

There are other texts too (a chemistry one, ESL, a nutrition book, nursing, and others), but I need to dig up their URLs. Most of these text are from OERI sponsored teams.

We will be setting up a H5Pstudio instance like that that eCampus Ontario has (https://h5pstudio.ecampusontario.ca/), which is a lot more powerful and easier to work with than the simple WordPress instance. I hope this will be operational in a few months.

Thanks!  I only needed one line on the bottom, so I was able to use your code on the final "Note" row, and that worked well enough.  A few more lines than needed for APA Style, but that's better than a missing element!

Re: Easy way to make transcripts

Great to know.  I didn't realize voice typing could be used that way.


Re: Gridline in table? #templates #Figures #Formatting

Delmar Larsen
 

I can probably make a bot. Although I would prefer to set this up with CSS. I never knew about this.


Re: Gridline in table? #templates #Figures #Formatting

Suzanne Wakim
 

I figured out how to get lines - but it's pretty clunky.  You need to add the following to each <td> element.  As in, you need to go into the html and find each <td> and add this to the very end

style="border:1px solid black;"

example:
<td style="border:1px solid black;">

It would be lovely if there was an easier way.   I also need to have some tables entirely white (rather than striped).  The code isn't working for that.  Any ideas?

I need it for table 2 on this page: https://bio.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Human_Biology/Book%3A_Human_Biology_(Wakim_and_Grewal)/08%3A_Inheritance/8.5%3A_Complex_Inheritance

The band in the middle makes the pictures look weird.  White would look better.  Not a bit deal if it's not possible. 


Re: Gridline in table? #templates #Figures #Formatting

Delmar Larsen
 

yes, Let me pull it up. It may require editing the HTML though.
Please don't take pics of tables. That breaks accessibility guidelines.


Gridline in table? #templates #Figures #Formatting

moja@...
 

I'm trying to show a table in correct APA Style, which requires a grid line under the last row of numbers.  Is there a way to add gridlines to the tables?  If not, I can add it as a figure/picture.

Easy way to make transcripts

Josh Halpern
 

Transcripts and closed captions on video are increasingly demanded for accessibility. An easy way to generate them is to open a new google docs page, select voice typing under tools with your speaker and microphone enables and let the video play.

  1. Click Tools and then Voice typing. A microphone box appears.
  2. When you're ready to transcribe, click the microphone and start the video.
  3. When you're done, click the microphone again.
The transcript can be stored as a file on the page where the video is.

Re: embedding ChemCollective virtual labs

Delmar Larsen
 

I think it is semantically a good idea to make different labs on different pages. It keep student thinking within a framework that they are building in their brain.

I think the template (available under templates) for the Vlab has all the JS code from the older pages. If it works as you like, then we should gut them and update to the current template.

I then took the "assignment path" of the second script and put it into the "Problem" of the the first script, and that seems to be the best way to run these, but one of my students who is helping me still had the default load a few times from her home, which has poor internet connectivity.


As for multiple labs on the same page, only the first loads correctly, and I have no problem making a special page for each lab activity.

So I think I have things under control, but please let me know if there is a better way to be doing this.

Re: Using Hypothesis for instructor feedback and teaching ideas

Anna Mills
 

Hi Bob,
This is amazing--thank you for sharing!  I think I will need to spend some time to digest it even partly.  
I am really intrigued by the idea of using Hypothesis to stimulate student research and allow them to share related sources and tie them to particular points in a text.  I haven't done much with tagging in Hypothesis yet, so I need to learn more about that.

Did you ever create a private instructor-only feedback group?  I am dreaming about having instructors share teaching strategies, feedback and reflections related to specific content.

For student comments, I use Hypothes.is (and also Perusall) with the Canvas LMS integration for the moment.  It is wonderful for stimulating in-class discussion since I can reference student comments and ask them to elaborate.

Thanks for taking the time to lay all of this out for us!
Anna

Hi Anna and all,

Here is a link to where I introduce hypothes.is to my general chemistry class, and there is a YouTube that introduces both LibreText and Hypothes.is to my students, and shows two paradigms for using hypothes.is.  Unfortunately, there was some "upgrade" (or something) to mindtouch, and it broke some of the functions that I use.

 I just contacted the people at Hypothes.is to see if they can help out, but right now the annotations are not showing in Libretext, but they show on other sites.  I'd be glad to communicate more, and have used the annotations in more complex courses that were co-taught across several campuses.  I could easily give you a whirlwind tour on Zoom,  but because they are private groups, I'd have to add you to each group to see, (I probably have thirty of them by now) and it would be quicker to just show it on Zoom.

Here is an article from before we had integrated Hypothes.is into Libretext that goes over the differences between annotations and  web 2.0 Blog-type comments,

Here is one after we integrated it into LibreText, but this is really about the intercollegiate courses, (that evolved into ones being hosted on LibreText)

Right now I am using hypothes.is to flip one of my classes in LibreText. There are only 17 students in that class and to date they have made 339 annotations on the class LibreText.

Cheers,
Bob
