FAQ and Other Tips and Tricks

This page is home to our FAQ, where you can find information on all sorts of things, from useful info about using Moodle and Google Docs to how to give someone access to course materials.  If you have any questions you would like to see us add answers to, please email us.

Since we have many questions answered here, we recommend that you either search by entering a keyword or by choosing a category in the blue box below instead of browsing the entire set.  For ease of use, we have links to broad categories below, but if you are looking for something that does not fit these categories, more are available in the drop-down menu in the blue box.  You may choose to add a focus (second category) to narrow your search.

How do I export my timeline? What format should I use?

You can export Timeline 3D in a variety of formats:

  • as a Quicktime movie, best for displaying the 3D effect
  • as still images in PDF, PNG, TIFF or EPS formats
  • as text in tab-delimited format

To use your timeline in a Powerpoint, Keynote presentation or on a webpage, the best bet is to export in Quicktime format.  Click the Quicktime icon in the toolbar to open the export options box.  There are several preset format sizes, but we recommend the HD 480p size, which will produce a reasonably sized movie file when it's complete.
