Course slides don't have to be just text. They can include images, audio, or even video! We'll cover the two main ways of adding this type of content: hosted elsewhere, or hosted directly on SafetyNow. Both are accessed from the same menu.
First, click the button highlighted below:
This will open up the below window:
If your content is hosted on your own servers or elsewhere, then simply paste the URL into the first box. Otherwise, you can upload your files directly into SafetyNow by clicking the blue link, or dragging them directly into the window.
The following file types are supported:
- Audio: MP3
- Video: AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MPEG, MKV, MOV
- Video URLs: YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia
- Images: GIF, JPG, JPEG, PNG, PSD, SVG
Each file can be up to 10GB.
You can also add attachments, which will allow your learners to download any files you wish them to. Below are the supported file types for attachments:
- Documents: DOC, DOCX, PDF, PUB, TXT
- Other: AI, CSV, ICS, JSON, ODS, ODT, PPT, PPTX, RTF, VCF, XLS, XLSX, ZIP
A new feature of the course editor is the ability to show blocks of code. This can be useful for technical courses where you need to show HTML or other code and ensure that it looks very consistent.
To insert a code block, click the highlighted button below:
This will insert a grey line where you can type or paste the code you need to show. The font is fixed width, meaning that each character will take up the same amount of space, ideal for code. Any HTML or Java placed in a code block will also not be interpreted by the browser and instead be displayed directly.
Hitting Enter will make a new code block, while hitting Shift+Enter will lengthen the existing code block, as seen below:
Once you're done entering code, simply click the same button in the toolbar again to exit code block mode.
Now you're ready to start making Quizzes!
