Options for revising your connexions content

After you have imported a Microsoft Word file into a Connexions module, you may discover that you need to revise the content.You have the option to make the revisions in the original Word document and then import it again into Connexions, or you canrevise the content within Connexions using the Edit-In-Place editor. This module explains how to revise your content usingthe Edit-In-Place editor.

Revising with the edit-in-place editor

The Edit-In-Place editor is the default editor on the "Edit" tab. You can insert new text and media objects into a module or modifythe existing contents of a module with this editor. You do not have to be familiar with the CMXML tags to use Edit-In-Place. Itinserts the appropriate CNXML tags for you when you insert a new item in the file. In addition, it has a help text feature thatdescribes the CNXML tags for the items you insert or edit with it.

Editing imported content with edit-in-place

To edit the content of a module that you imported from a Word document, use the following steps:

  1. Log into Connexions.
  2. Display the Connexions workspace or workgroup in which your document resides.
  3. Display the module you want to edit with Edit-In-Place.
  4. Scroll down to display the gray text box that contains the item you want to edit.
  5. Click in the text box. The gray box is replaced by a blue editing box that displays the text of the item.
    The blue text box in the Edit-In-Place editor.
  6. Make the necessary changes to the item.
  7. Click Save to save the entry or click Cancel to clear the entry in the blue editing box.
  8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 for any item you want to edit.
In the gray text boxes mathematical equations are displayed as they appear in the module. In the blue editing boxmathematical equations are displayed in the MathML markup language. Edit equations by making changes to the MathML.

Adding new content with edit-in-place

You can add new content items to a module with Edit-In-Place. The types of items you can add are: paragraphs, enumerated lists,bulleted lists, equations, exercises, figures, code blocks, notes, and examples. Edit-In-Place places the opening and closing CNXMLtags around the item and it generates a unique item ID for each item you add. To add new items, use the following steps:

  1. Log into Connexions.
  2. Display the Connexions workspace or workgroup in which your document resides.
  3. Display the module you want to edit with Edit-In-Place.
  4. Scroll down to display the location in the module in which you want to insert the content item. You can insertthe new item above or below and existing item by using the Add Here button above or below the existing item
  5. Select the type of item you want to enter from the drop-down list next to the Add Here button. The default is "Paragraph". These items are described in thehelp text, which can be accessed by selecting "Other Elements" from the drop-down list.
  6. Click Add Here . An empty blue editing box displays for the item you selected. You can display help textfor the item you selected by clicking Help editing xxx in the upper right corner of the blue box, where xxx is theCNXML tag for the item you selected.
  7. Type the text that is appropriate for the type of item in the blue editing box.
  8. Click Save to save the entry or click Cancel to clear the entry in the blue editing box.
  9. Repeat steps 4 through 8 for each new content item you want to add to the module.

Inserting content in an empty module

To insert text and media objects into a new module that contains no content, use the following steps:

  1. Log into Connexions.
  2. Display the Connexions workspace or workgroup in which your document resides.
  3. Display the module you want to edit with Edit-In-Place.
  4. Click in the gray box that says "Click To Insert Text" in the Edit-In-Place editor.
    The "Click To Insert Text" text box in the Edit-In-Place editor.
    The gray box is replaced by a blue editing box.
  5. Type the text you want to add in the blue editing box that says "Insert Module Text Here".
    The "Insert Module Text Here" editing box in the Edit-In-Place editor.
  6. Click Save to save the text you typed. The blue editing box is replaced by a gray box that displaysyour entry.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
