Creating WBT in Author-it Honeycomb

To add a transition to a course:

  1. Create the slide topic (parent) based on the Text Image Transitions template.
  2. Place the slide topic at Level 1 in the book contents.
  3. For each snippet, create a content topic based on any template (except the special Honeycomb templates) or reuse an existing topic.
  4. Place the content topic as a child element to the slide topic.

This example shows how your slide structure would look when the slide and elements are placed correctly.

Creating Transitions Contents

The dimensions of each snippet in the published course are fixed; a scroll bar displays if the content exceeds the available space.

Author-it automatically scales images up or down, with aspect ratio maintained, to fit the available width.

Setting the time between slides

Transition slides require the < ItemTransitionTime > variable and a value greater than 0, to allow time for the information to display.

For the Transition parent slide topic, set the value to 1 second or more, the same way you did for Conversation slide topics.
