Buttons provide a simple point-and-click interaction between the learners and the learning module. You can configure the appearance of the buttons including how they appear normally, when the mouse pointer hover on them, and when the learner click them.
Configure the decimal digit settings and thousand separator symbols in Calc, Excel, and Sheets using a combination of hash and zeroes in the custom number format.
Part II of serial post about formatting cell data in spreadsheet programs Calc, Excel, and Sheets. This entry is about formatting numerical data to restrict the number of digits in both sides of the decimal separator leading to the occasional use of leading and trailing zeroes.
Part I of serial post about formatting cell data in spreadsheet applications LibreOffice Calc, Microsoft Excel, and Google Sheets. This is the introduction part and also covers how to select cells to be formatted and how to open the Format Cells option window.
You can animate slide objects in Captivate. There are basic, emphasis, entrance, exit, and motion path animations. An object can also have two or more animations happening on different parts of the timeline or at the same time.
Adobe Captivate allows the inclusion of audio to elearning lessons. This entry covers how to add narration, sound effects, and background music to your learning modules using Captivate.
A handful of random techniques on working on Captivate images that I took note as I work: pasting an image as a slide object from a selection in an image editor, replacing several instances of the same image at once, and pasting an image as a background.
Grouping objects is one of the most useful features of Captivate. You can group so the collection of objects can behave and can be adjusted as one object. You can group and ungroup objects, apply effects on groups, and configure the timeline of a group.
Date and time are information that can appear in word problems but are not readily convertible to numerical data that we can subject in mathematical computation. Of course, we know how to do it. It is one of the daily life tasks that the students need to learn. Constructing a spreadsheet problem generator with date and clock time as given values are a little more complicated than the usual numerical data but very much feasible.
When you concatenate text and cell references to construct a spreadsheet word problem, the cell format from the cell source does not carry over to the concatenated text. You need to format the data from the cell references using the TEXT function.
