Adding Metadata in Connexions

3. Have the module reviewed by the TIMEA project. So that we can ensure that everything in TIMEA meets standards for scholarship, we review modules that appear under the TIMEA logo. However, you can contribute works to the general Connexions content commons without going through the review process. Please contact timea@rice.edu if you are interested in authoring a module for TIMEA and having it reviewed.

4. Provide Links to TIMEA: So that readers can easily navigate from your module to TIMEA, please provide links tothe main TIMEA site ( (External Link) ), the TIMEA search page ( (External Link) ), and the specific TIMEA resource that you are referencing, whether it is atext, image, or map.

To add a link that will appear in the left sidebar of the module,

  • Select the link tab from the module edit view.
  • Enter the title of the link in the "Link Name" field. Make links to Travelers in the Middle East Archive ( (External Link) ),Search TIMEA ( (External Link) ), and any TIMEA resources that are referenced in the module. You can also add links to other resources.
  • Enter the URL for the link (or the module number, if you’re linking to another Connexions module) in the “Link URL”field.
  • Use the pulldown menu to select the kind of link. All TIMEA links should be classified as “supplemental,” which means that they will be grouped together.
  • Use the pulldown menu to select the strength of the link, where 5 is the strongest. Travelers in the Middle East Archiveshould be given a strength of 5, while Search TIMEA should be given a strength of 4 and specific TIMEA resources should be given astrength of 3. This ensures that Travelers in the Middle East Archive will appear first.
Adding Links to the Sidebar

You can also add inline links within the text of your module. As you are editing your module, place the text or URL that you wish to turninto a link within the link element. For instance:

<link src=”http://hdl.handle.net/1911/9166”>

Egypt through the stereoscope : a journey through the land of the Pharaohs


Alternatively, if you are using the Word Importer to create your module within Microsoft Word, you can make a hyperlinkby highlighting the text that will be displayed, going to the Insert menu in the top toolbar and selecting “Hyperlink”, andentering the web address in the box provided. The link should be preserved once the Word document is converted to a Connexionsmodule.

If you are linking to texts or images in TIMEA, use the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) provided in thecitation for the item. It will look something like this: http://hdl.handle.net/1911/9184 This link uses the handle system to ensure that if the web site changes the web address will still workand is therefore intended to be more permanent than a basic URL.

Creating exercises

You can include exercises within your module, posing questions and displaying the solution only when the readerclicks the “view solution” link. Such exercises can act as a check on understanding and make the module more interactive. For example,in Catherine Schmidt-Jones’ module on Minor Keys and Scales , she discusses how minor scales work, then invites readers to write out their own.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
