We understand our teachers have contents in various forms. The conversions and formats below conserve the original formatting during importing.
If you have a gmail account you can convert Microsoft files into Google Docs to upload for usage on Actively Learn.
We recommend size 14pt font. Use the default font (Arial) if possible since is supported on every browser and device.
You may notice that the word immediately next to the word you bolded gets highlighted in Actively Learn. To avoid this, bold not only the word but the trailing space as well. Same goes for italics and underline.
Sometimes indentation doesn’t get imported into Actively Learn correctly. The correct way is to type a paragraph and then indent the beginning of it, by pressing the “Tab” button.
To type the second paragraph onwards, press “Enter” at the end of the previous paragraph to start a new, indented paragraph.
If you want to create a left aligned heading between paragraphs:
Currently, floating or tabbing text all the way to the right edge of a Doc is not supported.
Use the built-in bullet system, and do not copy/paste your own in.
Follow these steps to insert images so they properly appear in Actively Learn.
If you’re able to drag around the image and drop it any random position in the Doc, please delete it and try re-inserting using the steps above.
Equations are hosted on the user's Google Drive so not everyone will be able to access them. You must share the Doc with your students or make it public to the world, to get equations to properly render at this time.
Note: The following article applies to PDFs that are 10 pages or less in length
If you want your PDFs to have Actively Learn features -- adding a question directly into the text and notes that line up with the text -- you can try converting your PDF into a Google Doc, and have Google extract the text from the PDF document.
Here's a YouTube video that walks you through the steps, and we have an additional guide below.
Here are two screenshots, the first of the original PDF portion and the editable text.
