Inserting a page

FELIX 30-045

What you need to know

There are various options for providing information in FELIX:
(1) "Document" element: In this course element, you show a completed document (Office documents, PDF or even the display of graphic files). With the help of OnlyOffice, you can also release Office documents for joint editing (see Internal link opens in a new window:Helpcard 30-220).
(2) "HTML page" element: This element allows you to create welcome, info and content pages using the integrated HTML editor (see HelpCard Internal link opens in a new window:30-040).
(3) "Page" element:  The "Page" course element allows you to create welcome, info and content pages using a content editor with a building-block approach.

If you want to create the content directly in FELIX and have no experience with HTML pages, the creation effort for the "Page" module is significantly lower, as layout and content options can already be selected in advance.

What you have to do

  1. In your course, click on "Course editor" under "Administration" (top left).

    • The course editor will open.

  2. In the course structure (left), activate the course element under which the new element is to be inserted.
    Under "Insert course elements" (above) in the category "Knowledge transfer" select the "Single page" element. Alternatively, you can use the "Quick-Add" search function.

    • You can also move the element later by dragging and dropping.

  3. To rename the course element, enter the title that is displayed in the course in the "Title" field. If necessary, abbreviate the title in the "Title in course menu" field.
    "Save" your entries.

    • Note: The "Title in course menu" is displayed on the left side of the structure. Since the structure is fixed to a certain width, a maximum of 25 characters is recommended.

    • Under "Insert additional information" you can enter e.g. learning objectives and instructions for learners.

  4. Click on the red cross (top right) to close the course editor. Select the "Publish automatically" option to publish the change.

    • The course element has been successfully inserted and you can now edit it directly in the course.

  5. Click on the inserted page and then open the editing mode on the right.

  6. Select a suitable layout for your content area under "Insert new layout".

  7. With "Add content" you can fill your content area.

    • You can choose from various elements under "Content". You can generate a heading with the "H element" and set a text element with the "Paragraph". You can also use elements to create "Tables", "Formulas" and "Codes".

    • Images, audio files, videos, quotes, documents and diagrams (tool for creating drawings and diagrams) are automatically saved in the Media Center and can therefore be used across courses. Files can be shared with other owners directly when they are uploaded to the Media Center.

    • Under "Layout", the "Separator" allows you to visually separate different areas using a dividing line.

    • You can replace a selected layout template by clicking on the cogwheel symbol.

    • Changes are saved automatically.
