Authoring with Generic Activities
So now you have created a new WISE 2.5 Concord Pedagoica step and are wondering what you can do with it. Well, you have come to the right place to find out. First thing, make sure you can see a window that looks like this:
in the upper left of the screen. It is possible to cover it with another window so search carefully if you do not see it at first. This is the Activity Control Panel (Windows XP example).
It is intended to be self-documenting, but here is what is says:
Activity before Edit is selected
Activity after Edit is selected
Now you can select any component in the activity window and resize handles should appear. You can also move the component by left-clicking and dragging anywhere inside the component. The side and corner resize handles should work as you would expect. You can do all of this even after you have done things while the activity was in Run mode.
Activity components resized and moved
If you are through making changes at this time, you can save by clicking run mode again, and then closing the window. The next time you run this step in authoring mode, you should get the state back as you saved it. You can then continue to interact with it in Run mode.
Accessing the string variable dialog is accomplished by right-clicking anywhere in the activity window when it is in Edit mode.
That is about it for general instructions on how to author generic activities. The rest is specific to each individual generic activity. In each one, be sure to examine the string variables and their descriptions for information on how to modify the behavior and presentation of the activity.
