Text entry fields

Jan 27, 2013

Hi everyone, 

I'am building an e-Learning course for mathematics. I was wondering if it's possible to put a calculator on every slide that a student can use for the input of a text entry field, so that they don't have to use their keyboard to answer the questions in my course. 

Thx Paul

Hey Paul,

There are several ways to include persistent items such as a calculator:

Lightbox slide

Custom player tab

Slide master

Here's an example of a calculator Dave M put together. I copied it from the slide and pasted on the slide master. It's available for each slide so the learner has quick access.

Would something like this work?

Thx David. It's not exactly what I meant. But it looks great and is a good starting point to work from. 

I need a calculator with only ten digits and a submit button. When the student wants to answer a question like '4 x 5 = ' he/she can answer it by clicking '2' and '0' and then select the submit button. This action will show the layer for a good answer. When they have used  the wrong digits It will show them the layer for a wrong answer.
