A description of how to view courses and modules in Connexions.
Each piece of content has two major components available for viewing: the actual content itself, and the metadata page, containing information about the content, author, and more. When you first browse to a module or collection, you will be taken to the content page. To see the metadata, select the metadata link at the bottom of the page. Metadata are non-content information about a module, such as the module ID, license type, version number,creation date, revision date, authors, maintainers, copyright holders, module name, keywords, and abstract.

All Connexions content is located in the content repository , which can always be navigated to by clicking the Content tab at the top of the page. To allow you to easily access other parts of Connexions while viewing content (e.g. your MyCNX page or our Help documentation) the blue Connexions logo will always be located above the content you are viewing, including many of the links also on the home page .

What's in this module?

This module first describes the basic layout of the "Viewing Content" pages. There are additional features added to the page when you are viewing content in the context of a collection or a lens. Those extra features are described in the second and third sections of this module.

Jump to:

  1. Basic Layout
  2. Collection Context
  3. Lens Context

Basic layout

The components of the content viewing page include:

Content action bar

The Content Action bar is a white horizontal bar above the module or collection title that includes a series of dropdown menus. All actions in the Content Action bar are also available as plain hyperlinks in the footer of the page.

Downloads dropdown in the content action bar

Add to my favorites

The Add to my favorites dropdown allows you to quickly add content to your My Favorites lens. In addition to bookmarking content of personal interest, the My Favorites lens also allows readers to start reading from where they last left off within a bookmarked collection.

Add to a lens

The Add to a lens dropdown allows you to quickly add content to a lens you own.

Reuse/edit

The Reuse/Edit dropdown menu allows you to quickly checkout the content to a Work Area (if you have permissions to edit the content) or derive a copy of the content to create an adaptation (if you don't have permissions).

Download

The Downloads dropdown menu allows you to quickly access PDF and EPUB versions of the module and/or collection. The link to More downloads... will take you to all available downloads for the content on its metadata page.

Click the Print this page button to print a printer-friendly version of the HTML page.

Content title bar

Title, author, and summary

The content title bar displays the title, author(s), and summary provided by the author(s) for the content. More detailed metadata is on the Metadata page, which you can access through a link in the footer of the page.
