Replacing the Sanako Authoring Tool

  1. Problem: Oral exams with visual cues have been popular, but the Sanako Authoring Tool we used to create them has been faded out. How can we quickl replace it?
  2. Workaround:
    1. collect your files in my Word  template (left part of screenshot) like before (question/cue, repetitions, response pause time), including your images
    2. Save your MS-Word files as html.
    3. This will create a subfolder with media (right-side of screenshot). All your images are numbered sequentially in the order they appear in your template. Some are duplicated: select the first ones (the duplicate is a size reduction), plus the unique ones, and copy them to a new folder, e.g. “pictures”, on the Sanako teacher share, somewhere underneath your course folder where also your audio exam files resides.
    4. authoring-tool-replacing

  3. During the exam , you can display the pictures while playing the audio portion of your oral exam, from this folder sorted by name (= numbered sequentially) with the default teacher computer image viewer. No need even to fling out PowerPoint….

    why is it so troublesome? we’re using the new Robotel Media Activities Dashboard and it does the job well enough.
