Dimdim Authoring

All properties sheets contain three tabs:

  • Basic: Which controls the Content of the Activity.
  • Advanced: Which controls the Behaviour of the Activity.
  • Instructions: Provides information on the structure of the activity.

Basic Tab

View of the Basic tab for Dimdim Authoring.

The Basic Tab for the Dimdim Activity allows authors to specify a title for the activity, provide a brief message to learners, and specify basic configuration settings for the Dimdim Conference.

  • Title: All Activities have a web page title which is presented at the top of the activity page when displayed in the Learning Environment. This is NOT the same title as the Title that can be set using the Properties Inspector.
  • Content: All Activities have a text area that is presented beneath the title. This is where the main activity text to be displayed to learners is entered. The text can be formatted using the Rich-Text Editor. Image, Video, Audio and URL content can also be displayed in the Instructions area.
  • Specific Feature - Dimdim Settings
    • Number of Microphones: This specifies how many active microphones are permitted in the Conference. For example, in a simple teacher-student presentation, only one microphone would be required. For multiple speakers, additional microphones would need to be created in the conference. Dimdim Open Source can support up to three simultaneous microphones in the one conference.

      The number of microphones can be changed underway by the conference leader through the settings tab in the Dimdim conference.

Advanced Tab

  • Add Notebook... : This option is available on all Activities. Enabling this option creates a Notebook as part of the Activity, which Learner's can use to reflect on the activity just completed. The reflections are personal (ie: not shared with other learners).
