How do I Allow Unlimited Text in a Text Entry Field?
I hope someone can help.
I have a couple of questions about the input - text entry field.
I’m developing a course that lends itself to the learner reflecting. I have a slide set up where they reflect on a question I ask. I then show them what they have written, on the following slide, with a section beside it where I give them an expert’s view.
While writing their reflection, they appear to be able to write as much as they like as the box they are writing in seems just to move up, which allows them to keep writing. However, the text is really small when showing the text back on the following slide. Is there a way to set the box with the text entry variable to show all the text without reducing the size, even though the amount of text is more than the size of the variable text box?
I thought maybe putting it in a scrolling panel that only becomes available if there is more text than can fit in the box; however, I couldn’t figure out how to do it.
I DON’T want to limit the amount of text they can type in if I don’t have to.
It’s the first time I’m developing a reflective type of course, and there’s also a journal that learners can complete. Once this is all uploaded to an LMS as a Scorm or xAPI package, what happens to the text each learner writes in their journal while going through the eLearn? Will it save there for them individually in their LMS profile so that even if they go back to the eLearn in 2 years, their reflective thoughts will still be there? I wasn’t sure if it was LMS, browser or something else dependent.
