Dual Comparison Screen Template

Dual Comparison Screen Template.jpg
OVERVIEW: The Dual Comparison Template is used to compare two media items. They can be images, movies, or audio files. They each offer their own text boxes to compare/contrast the items. They can also link to other screens if more detailed information is necessary. Example 1 Example 2

Timeline Comparison Screen Template

OVERVIEW: The Timeline Comparison Template is used to display a timeline, supplying multiple media options. Each timeline entry can have images, a movie, an audio file, and a link. These capabilities make the Timeline Comparison Template useful for displaying multiple types of media in a single area. Example

Zoom Screen Template

OVERVIEW: The Zoom Template allows the user to zoom in on an image. This screen can also have two audio files attached to it. It has some of the same capabilities as the Series Template (described above), but is designed for a visual focus on one image only. This is a good screen to link to from the central image on an Exploration Entry Template, or from one of the stops on a Slider Template, or anywhere a thumbnail image may link to another screen and a larger look at the image is desired. The Zoom Template is a "terminal" screen; no other screens or URLs can be linked to it. Example

Slider Screen Template

OVERVIEW: The Zoom Template allows the user to zoom in on an image. This screen can also have two audio files attached to it. It has some of the same capabilities as the Series Template (described above), but is designed for a visual focus on one image only. This is a good screen to link to from the central image on an Exploration Entry Template, or from one of the stops on a Slider Template, or anywhere a thumbnail image may link to another screen and a larger look at the image is desired. The Zoom Template is a "terminal" screen; no other screens or URLs can be linked to it. Example

Series Screen Template

OVERVIEW: While the Series Screen is considered a single screen, it automatically generates daughter screens for each thumbnail included. The opening screen provides a scrollable text overview, a main media area (which could be an image and a video), and thumbnails of subsequent screens ("pages"). Each thumbnail can be labeled with the name of the page it appears on, telling the viewer what page he or she will go to when clicking on the thumbnail. Authors might use page numbers for the names, but could also use image titles. When the thumbnails are clicked, the image is brought up in enlarged format with pan and zoom features (very like the Zoom Template). A "Text" button can be clicked with the mouse and a small pop-up box displaying associated text will appear. Users can move from one page in the series to the next by means of forward and backward arrows on each screen. From the main Series Screen, any thumbnail can be clicked, so it is possible to view the series out of sequence. Example

Phone Dial Screen Template

OVERVIEW: This screen, which looks like an old-fashioned phone dial beside text, functions as a "visual table of Contents" about the presentation and serves as an ideal "Home" screen. By using a series of images, it literally provides a snapshot of the material that will be covered. It is an ideal introductory screen which does not present much content on its own; the content is all made available through links to other screens which allow significantly more quantities and more varied kinds of information to be presented. Example

Media Focus Screen Template

OVERVIEW: This screen allows for a title and subtitle, scrollable text, and an image with a movie. There are no links to other screens. A caption or tombstone data for the image may be displayed. This screen is very similar to the Enlargement Template, described above, with the major difference being that the Media Focus Template has the capacity to show video as well as still images.
