Instructions for use
- Download a copy of presentation-engine to a suitable directory on your computer.
- Download a copy of this repo, and move folders if necessary, so that you end up with a folder structure like this:
some_folder - presentation-engine (folder, must be named as shown here!) - tischoolslides (folder) - index.html <-- TOC for the whole course - 000 (folder) - index.html <-- TOC for the lesson - lab.html <-- Lab for the lesson ... etc
You might want to copy or move the demos into your Titanium Workspace directory, though that's optional.
Running a presentation
- Open the coursename/index.html in your browser. Safari seems to work the best, and Firefox works well too. With Chrome, you'll have to re-open the Presenter Notes window for every lesson. Internet Explorer is untested, but versions 8 or 9 probably work fine.
- Click a lesson's name, which opens the 000/index.html file for that lesson.
- Click the "Notes" icon to open a separate window (you might need to override any pop-up blocker to see that window). That new window will display presenter notes as you step through the slides.
- At the end of a lesson, if running Chrome, close the presenter notes window. In all browsers, click the home icon, which will take you back to the course TOC slide. Click the next lesson's title. (If running Chrome, reopen the presenter notes window.)
Navigating within a presentation
Press right or left arrow keys to move forward/back in a presentation. Some slides include "vertically nested" sub-slides. Such nested slides will show a down-pointing arrow. Press the down-arrow key to move through those sub-slides.
Press the Spacebar to see a partial overview of the slides in a presentation.
