Hi folks, it looks like Scott the Magnificent has already created us a CanvasHacks public classroom to play in, and enrolled us as teachers.

Any thoughts on structure? I have a similar course that is mostly complete that I am preparing for my faculty that I could upload to provide a bit of structure. It is intended for non-coders, and has the following module structure:

  • About HTML and the HTML Editor - DO NOT FEAR THE CODE!
  • Beginning Users
  • Intermediate users
  • Advanced users
  • Sharing (sharing has a discussion and links to external resoursces

However, I am not a pushy sort, so whatever anybody else wants, I am more than happy to go along with. I can always upload stuff a piece at a time and fit it where I can.

My "lessons" are all one page, and include:

  • A brief description
  • The code snippet
  • Anatomy of the code snippet where I identify those components that are easy to modify by novices like myself
  • Instructions for use
  • Troubleshooting, and
  • Sometimes some obvious variations based on changes to parts of the code (colors, sizes, positions etc. - the minor stuff)

Let me know what your think!

Oh yah, and I also have a hokey Home page, because that's just the kind of guy I am:)

Great idea, Kelley.

I created a course shell in resources.instructure.com.  It looks like well over 60 people have already requested either student or teacher level access.  Those of you with teacher level access, feel free to invite your friends.  Anyone else interested, please comment to that effect.   @kmeeusen ​ and the super helpful  @bowmanr ​ have been great about going in and inviting folks. 

Thanks

Scott

coltierb@macc.edu

Thanks!

Hi coltierb

Of course you can, and especially since you asked so nicely, and with proper grammar!

You should receive your invite shortly - don't know why I say that, since everybody typically has received their invite by the time I get back in here.

Enjoy!

Thank you for creating this Class!  I would like to create buttons on my home page that when hover over open a box with an additional explanation and when you click on it take you to a page. Does anybody know how to do it? The original buttons are just jpg files. Thank you, Ivan Mesa imesa2@hccfl.Edu

Ivan:

In the CanvasHacks course, in the Beginning Users' module, "Add Tooltip to Image or Text"

Add a Tooltip to Image

Hover over the image below to display the tool tip.

  Code Snippet

<img title="GIF of panda playing a banjo - ROCK ON Dude!" src="/courses/443/files/12396/preview" alt="Banjo panda.gif" data-api-endpoint="https://resources.instructure.com/api/v1/courses/443/files/12396/download" data-api-returntype="File" /></p>

How to Do This

1. Add your image like normal. How do I embed images from Flickr Creative Commons? (Links to an external site.) or How do I embed images from Canvas into the Rich Content Editor? (Links to an external site.)

2. Change to HTML editor. How do I edit content in the HTML view in the Rich Content Editor? (Links to an external site.)

3. Add title="Text you want to display in the tooltip" somewhere in the image tag (Yellow highlighted text in snippet above).

But what about text you say? Sure you can do that too, you just have to use a <span> tag.

Add a Tool Tip to Text

1. Type your text into the Rich Content Editor

2. Change to HTML editor. How do I edit content in the HTML view in the Rich Content Editor? (Links to an external site.)

3. Put <span title="Text you want to display in the tooltip"> before your text and </span> after your text

I hope this helps.
