Options for revising your connexions content

After you have imported a Microsoft Word file into a Connexions module, you may discover that you need to revise the content.You have the option to make the revisions in the original Word document and then import it again into Connexions, or you canrevise the content within Connexions using the Edit-In-Place editor. This module explains how to revise your content usingthe Edit-In-Place editor.

Revising with the edit-in-place editor

The Edit-In-Place editor is the default editor on the "Edit" tab. You can insert new text and media objects into a module or modifythe existing contents of a module with this editor. You do not have to be familiar with the CMXML tags to use Edit-In-Place. Itinserts the appropriate CNXML tags for you when you insert a new item in the file. In addition, it has a help text feature thatdescribes the CNXML tags for the items you insert or edit with it.

Editing imported content with edit-in-place

To edit the content of a module that you imported from a Word document, use the following steps:

  1. Log into Connexions.
  2. Display the Connexions workspace or workgroup in which your document resides.
  3. Display the module you want to edit with Edit-In-Place.
  4. Scroll down to display the gray text box that contains the item you want to edit.

  7. Click Save to save the entry or click Cancel to clear the entry in the blue editing box.
  8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 for any item you want to edit.
In the gray text boxes mathematical equations are displayed as they appear in the module. In the blue editing boxmathematical equations are displayed in the MathML markup language. Edit equations by making changes to the MathML.

Adding new content with edit-in-place

You can add new content items to a module with Edit-In-Place. The types of items you can add are: paragraphs, enumerated lists,bulleted lists, equations, exercises, figures, code blocks, notes, and examples. Edit-In-Place places the opening and closing CNXMLtags around the item and it generates a unique item ID for each item you add. To add new items, use the following steps:

  1. Log into Connexions.
  2. Display the Connexions workspace or workgroup in which your document resides.
  3. Display the module you want to edit with Edit-In-Place.
  4. Scroll down to display the location in the module in which you want to insert the content item. You can insertthe new item above or below and existing item by using the Add Here button above or below the existing item
  5. Select the type of item you want to enter from the drop-down list next to the Add Here button. The default is "Paragraph". These items are described in thehelp text, which can be accessed by selecting "Other Elements" from the drop-down list.
  6. Click Add Here . An empty blue editing box displays for the item you selected. You can display help textfor the item you selected by clicking Help editing xxx in the upper right corner of the blue box, where xxx is theCNXML tag for the item you selected.
  7. Type the text that is appropriate for the type of item in the blue editing box.
  8. Click Save to save the entry or click Cancel to clear the entry in the blue editing box.
  9. Repeat steps 4 through 8 for each new content item you want to add to the module.

Inserting content in an empty module

To insert text and media objects into a new module that contains no content, use the following steps:
