Tutorials: Add content and setting the slide for an embedded tutorial

In this article

In an embedded tutorial, your content is split into two parts:

  • A question column, which can contain questions, instructions, descriptions, and other information. Think of this as your narrative for the slide.
  • The slide content, which allows you to enter a full URL, or select the LibGuide where you plan to embed this tutorial. This is only for informational purposes and to help with the previewing process. You still need to add the embed code to the target website. This is the content you want to explain, tour, or demonstrate with your question column.

For example, if you were creating a tutorial to help patrons learn how to use book spaces, you could display your LibCal Spaces booking page in the tutorial. Then, you could add content to the question column to walk them through the booking process. You could also add graded questions to assess their skills.

Set the slide content

selecting the slide content

After setting the slide, you can start to add questions and other content to the slide.


Add fields

While editing the slide, the Fields tab will display all of the available types of fields you can add to the question column. This is the content that will display when the tutorial is being viewed. 

The Fields tab

Each field you add can be graded, which is helpful if your tutorial is intended to assess what the user's learned. The total score of all graded fields in the tutorial will be included in the submission data, and can also be displayed on screen for the user to review after submitting the tutorial.
