The QuickPlace Demo

http://quartz.atkinson.yorku.ca/QuickPlace/akadmsdemo/

This page and the next four, explain how to create and add content with Quickplace. View the entire demo to learn more about

  • Access rights (reader, author, manager)
  • Organizing content
  • Deleting content
adding content to a quickplace course

Adding Content to a Quickplace Course

Requires no special software

Uses your browser (Internet Explorer supports more features than Netscape)

Makes it easy to publish to the web

slide4

Options shown at the top of Quickplace pages depend on access rights and who originally authored the page…

For example, you do not see these options on this Quickplace demo’s screens because you have reader, not author rights here.

slide5

When you sign-in to your course (see Accessing Quickplace in the sidebar to the left) and see these options, click ‘New’ to add content

slide6

… and choices will appear **.

The Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint choices are only available if you have the Microsoft office software installed on your computer and are using Internet Explorer.

slide7

Content can be created in several ways.

It can be authored directly in Quickplace

slide8

The ‘Page’ choice prompts you to complete an on-line form to enter text and images directly.

slide9

Text is typed and formatted much as with any word processing software, although choices are more limited

Most formatting icons will be familiar (Hint: click this icon several times to toggle through all the alignment options.)

There is even a spell-checker.

slide10

Click to add pictures

… browse for the image or drag from the desktop

Widely availableImage editing software can be used to convert images to the .jpg or .gif formats allowed.

slide11

Click to add links to the web

Then insert by browsing for the image

slide12

Would you like students to hear a special song or view a webcam movie?

Anything which is in a file can be attached to pages created in Quickplace. Students double-click on the file’s icon to download it.

slide14

Import directly any file with .htm or .html extensions such as webpages.

Most of today’s Office software will convert documents, presentations and spreadsheets to html so they are ready to publish or the web and import into Quickplace.

slide16

Note for Microsoft Office users:

  • On import, Quickplace will convert Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations to html
    • If you are using Internet Explorer
    • And have Microsoft Office 97 or 2000 installed on your system
  • This tutorial is a PowerPoint presentation imported into Quickplace.
slide17

More for Microsoft Office users:

The integration with Microsoft Office is so seamless that these appear as separate choices when you click ‘New’ if you have Office on your system

slide18

…If you use the Microsoft Office choices, open Windows Explorer, browse for the file, drag it and drop it in the Quickplace form. Wait while Quickplace converts it to html and then click Publish.

slide19

No matter how content is added, at the end of the on-screen forms there is a place to click ‘Publish As’ to file and organize the content and make it available to students, …or to save it as a draft to work on another day.

slide20

For more on adding content and publishing in Quickplace, click ‘help’ at the top of Quickplace screens and at the bottom of Quickplace forms.
