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

I need to modify the code slightly for that. I will get you it this weekend.

I should clarify that the original PDFs are just included as attachments to the page they relate to. But when I made a version in the LibreTexts editor, of course, it shows up as its own subpage, not an attachment.

Re: Is there a way to make pages that won't show up in the chapter listing?

Oh interesting!  Maybe I should convert the PDFs to EPUB eventually then.  What I'm talking about now is the LibreTexts page I made as an accessible version since the PDF isn't accessible.  


Re: Is there a way to make pages that won't show up in the chapter listing?

Joshua Hori
 

My preference is ePub3 output as well. It’s similar to accessing webpages and will be familiar to the user.

 

ePub can be printed as PDF or on paper for those who prefer those formats.

Accessibility requirements say we need one export option and we are putting out eggs in the EPUB3 output. This is MUCH easier to ensure accessibility requirements than the PDF. I am unsure if that factors into your plans.

Do you want to accessible to everyone?

I want to offer alternate accessible versions of some PDF files as LibreTexts pages, but I don't want these sub-pages listed next to the sections on the chapter landing page. Thanks!


Re: Putting borders on Tables

I would like to put black borders on the columns of the table. I did
not see a way to make that happen and my html change was not
successful. I am not an expert in table html, so it could be my
ignorance,

Is there a way to modify the table properties through the MindTouch editor?

Hi All,
I am creating a page that separates the information into three column, so I put them in a table.  I would like to put borders between the three columns, but when I try to put in html code such as border = "1", it does not show up.
The page that I am working on is:

Thanks,

Bob Belford from U. Arkansas has been using private groups in his LibreTexts for several years now. I hope he can chime in.


Using Hypothesis for instructor feedback and teaching ideas

Anna Mills
 

I am trying out a private Hypothesis group as a way to start creating community.  Here's my page in my textbook's Teachers' Guide inviting instructors to join and comment.  I'd love to know if anyone has done this and has tips or has other ways to get feedback and create community.
Thanks!

Re: Ancillaries and PowerPoint in the pdf book Glossary is missing

Delmar Larsen
 

I confirm that the glossary isn't showing up and submitted an internal ticket to review.


Is it possible to add subpages so that they don't appear in the chapter's table of contents? #Formatting

Anna Mills
 

I made a subpage, that is linked to a regular page.  I am going to make a lot of these and I don't want to clog up the chapter's table of contents.  Is there any way to exclude these sub pages from the table of contents?  Thanks in advance for any help!
