      Demo

      • Reflows content to fit on small screens
      • Takes headings to create an outline. Click on heading to go to that section of document
      • Sections are collapsible
      • font size, character spacing, and line height can be changed
      • developed to be compatible with screenreader
      • future areas of improvement: tables and images (using machine learning to create alt text when images don't have one)
      • Currently available for mobile devices and Chromebooks where Android app can be loaded

      Impact on readability

      • allows users to increase text spacing, font size, etc
      • student with 3rd grade school children with varying levels of fluency: one kid increased his speed by 27 words per minute, was able to read with inflection + meaning. even the fastest student jumped 27 words per minute.
      • helps people who struggle to read, but also increases efficiency for proficient readers
      • font, size, character spacing, line height, and character stretch seem to be the key factors in increasing efficiency.

      Built in highlighter

      • Used as a "ruler" to guide reader through document, not necessarily to make highlights/annotations to refer to later
      • 4 ways of highlighting: mouse, underline, lightbox, and grey line
      • No 1 solution worked better for the group as a whole - it was individual to the reader

    1. 7 things you should know about This page offers two lists of technologies. One relates to learning technologies and the other to campus IT. In either case, one clicks "see all" and is shown a list of many up and coming technologies. One can click the links to get a discussion of seven things the user should know about these technologies. Reports are two pages and follow a set format that includes a brief story or illustration. These introduce the visitor to the use of the technology but do not provide extensive explanation; it is an introduction. Technologies listed on these pages are often but not always technologies that the average instructional designer may put to use. Rating: 3/5

    1. This link is to a three-page PDF that describes Gagne's nine events of instruction, largely in in the form of a graphic. Text is minimized and descriptive text is color coded so it is easy to find underneath the graphic at the top. The layout is simple and easy to follow. A general description of Gagne's work is not part of this page. While this particular presentation does not have personal appeal to me, it is included here due to the quality of the page and because the presentation is more user friendly than most. Rating 4/5

    1. students are not downloading texts in ePub format but, rather, as PDFs.

      Interesting. Because they're easier (more familiar?) to work with?

    1. On a practical level, this means that we wanted to devise ways of presenting monographs that could be accomplished with only the most basic digital version of a book: a full-text PDF file.

      Is it? Why not the Web?
