Honeycomb Variables

Author-it Honeycomb User Guide

The standard WBT uses the following variables:

  • ItemTransitionTime: This variable is assigned to the book and defines the transition time of the elements within a slide, in seconds. If you set the value to 0, all slide content appears immediately.

    The slide transition time as shown in the slide footer, is defined by the number of items and the item transition time. In case that you add audio to the slide, the audio playing time defines the slide transition time.

Note: If you choose '0', the conversation slides, carousel slides, and text-image transition slides do not work properly. However, you can assign the variable to the conversation, carousel, or text-image transition slide topics, with a different value, to make them work again.

  • Scorm_version: This variable is a list of values variable that uses the values 1.2, 2004, xapi, 1.2_xapi and 2004_xapi. Author-it recommends selecting one of these values to match the SCORM version your LMS uses. Best practice is to assign the desired default value to the Honeycomb book template, but allow the variable value as 'prompt at publish'.
