Output Course Notes to Word Document

Dec 10, 2014

I have developed a module where the learner takes notes while completing the exercises.  I have setup where they can print and e-mail their notes but I would like the ability for them to output their notes to a Word document.  Has anyone done this and can point me in the right direction?

I've never heard of this being done. What you could do is output it to a Google document. That will require a JavaScript trigger an an Google script associated with the doc. You can search the forums or the web for details on how that can be done. It might be extra tricky because you'll want a unique document for each person, and someway to ensure people see only their doc.

I can imagine it happening something like this. The JavaScript calls the Google Script which creates a document for that one user, writes the content to it, sets the view privileges to 'anyone with link can view' then emails a link to the person.

Or you could use JavaScript to do a "mailto:" which would open their email client and they could email the notes (which are put into the email body) to themselves.
