In this article by Dirk Manuel, you will learn how to:

  • Use Web Pages in the Concepts pane and beyond
  • Use Packages and link them to content objects

A Web Page, in UPK terms, is a single file that can contain text or images. In this respect, Web Pages are very limited. You can perform rudimentary font formatting, provide lists, and insert images, but that's about it. You cannot insert tables, or use any HTML tags as you would be able to with real web pages (which you can only use via a Package). However, they are very flexible, and can be utilized in a number of ways.

Version Difference

For readers familiar with OnDemand version 8.7 and earlier, Web Pages are the new, improved text Infoblocks. Other types of Infoblocks have been replaced by Packages, which are covered separately, below.

Using Web Pages in the Concept pane

The most common use of Web Pages is to provide context information for Topics. Look at the following image of the Outline for our example course:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

You will see that the upper-right section of the Outline window contains a pane labeled Concept. If you want any information to be displayed in this pane, then you need to create a Web Page and attach it to the content object in the Outline.

Version Difference

Although the Concept pane always appears in the Outline view, if it is empty, then it does not appear in the Player. This is, thankfully, a new feature in UPK 3.5. In previous versions, the Concept pane always appeared in the Player, often appearing as a blank frame, where developers couldn't be bothered to provide any concepts.

To create a new Web Page and attach it to a content object, carry out the following steps:

  1. Open the Outline containing the content object to which you want to attach the Web Page, in the Outline Editor.
  2. Click on the content object to select it. Although in this example we are attaching a Web Page to the concept pane for a Topic, Modules, and Sections also have concept panes, so you can also attach Web Pages to these as well.
  3. Click on the Create new web page button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) in the Concept pane. The Save As dialog box is displayed.

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  4. Navigate to the folder in which you want to save the Web Page (we will use an Assets sub-folder for all of our Web Pages), enter a name for the Web Page (it makes sense to use a reference to the content object to which the Web Page relates), and then click on the Save button. The Web Page Editor is opened on the Developer screen, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  5. Enter the information that you want to appear in the Concept pane in the editor (as has already been done in the previous example). You can set the font face and size; set text to bold, italics, and underlined; change the text color, and change change the background color (again, as has been done in the earlier example). You can also change the paragraph alignment, and format numbered and bulleted lists.
  6. Once you have entered the required text, click on the Save button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to save your changes, and then close the Web Page Editor tabbed page. You are returned to the Outline Editor. Now, the Concept pane shows the contents of the Web Page, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Version Difference

In UPK 3.5 (and OnDemand 9.1) you can only attach a single Web Page to the Concept pane. This is a change from OnDemand 8.7, where you could attach multiple Infoblocks and they would be displayed sequentially. (But note that if you convert content from OnDemand 8.7 where there are multiple Infoblocks in a single Concept pane, then all of the attached Infoblocks will be converted to a single Web Page in UPK 3.5.)

The above steps explain how to attach a Web Page to the Concept pane for an exercise from the Outline. Although this is done from the Outline, the Web Page is attached to the Topic content object and not to the outline element. If you subsequently insert the same Topic in another Outline, the same Web Page will be used in the Concept pane of the new Outline.

You can also attach a Web Page to the Concept pane for an exercise from within the Topic Editor. This is a useful option if you want to create concept Web Page but have not yet built an Outline to house the Topic. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Topic in the Topic Editor.
  2. Select menu option View|Concept Properties. The Concept Properties dialog box is displayed. This is very similar to the Concept pane seen in the Overview. It contains the same buttons.
  3. Create and save the Web Page as described above.
  4. When you have finished, and the Web Page is displayed in the Concept Properties dialog box, click on the OK button.

Using images in Web Pages

As stated above, a Web Page can contain an image. This can be instead of, or in addition to, any text (although if you only wanted to include a single image in the Web Page you could always use a Package, as explained later in this article).

Images are a nice way of adding interest to a Web Page (and therefore to your training), or of providing additional information that is better explained graphically (after all, a picture is worth a thousand words). However, if you are using images in the Concept pane, then you should consider the overall size of the image and the likely width of the Concept pane, bearing in mind that the trainee may run the Player in a smaller window than the one you design.

For our sample exercise, given that we are providing simulations for the SAP system, we will include a small SAP logo in the Web Page that appears in the Concept pane for our course Module. For the sake of variety, we will do this from the Library, and not from the Outline Editor.

To add an image to a Web Page, carry out the steps described below.

  1. In the Library, locate the folder containing the Web Page to which you want to add the image.
  2. Double-click on the Web Page, to open it in the Web Page Editor. As before, this is opened in a separate tab in the main UPK Developer window, as can be seen in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  3. Within the Web Page, position the cursor at the place in the text where you want the image to appear.
  4. Select menu option Insert|Image. The Insert Image dialog box is displayed, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  5. In the Link to bar on the leftmost side of the dialog box, select the location of the image file that you want to insert into the Web Page. You can insert an image that you have already imported into your Library (for example, in a Package), an image that is located on your computer (or any attached drive) (option Image on My Computer), or an image from the Internet (option URL). For our sample exercise, we will insert an image from our computer.
  6. In the rightmost side of the dialog box, navigate to and select the image file that you want to insert into the Web Page.
  7. Click on OK. The image is inserted, as shown in the following screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  8. Save the Web Page, and close the Web Page Editor, if you have finished editing this Web Page. (We have not; we want to adjust the image, as explained below).

Of course, this doesn't look too pretty. Thankfully, we can do something about this, because UPK provides some rudimentary features for adjusting images in Web Pages.

To adjust the size or position of an image in a Web Page, carry out the following steps:

  1. With the Web Page open in the Web Page Editor, right-click on the image that you want to adjust, and then select Image Properties from the context menu. The Image Properties dialog box is displayed, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  2. In the Alternative Text field, enter a short text description of the image. This will be used as the ToolTip in some web browsers.
  3. Under Size, select whether you want to use the original image size or not, and specify a new height and width if you choose not.
  4. Under Appearance, select a border width and indicate where the image should be aligned on the Web Page. Your choices are: Top, Middle, Bottom, Left, and Right. The first three of these (the vertical options) control the position of the image relative to the line of text in which it is located. The last two (the horizontal options) determine whether the image is left-aligned or right-aligned within the overall Web Page. Although these are two independent things (vertical and horizontal), you can only select one, so if you want the image to be right-aligned and halfway down the page, you can't do it.
  5. Click on OK to confirm your changes.
  6. Save and close the Web Page.

For our sample exercise, we resized the image, set it to be right-aligned, and added a 1pt border around it (because it looked odd with a white background against the blue of the Web Page, without a border).

A better option would be to use an image with a transparent background. In this example we have used an image with a solid background just for the purposes of illustration.

These settings are as shown in the previous screenshot. This gives us a final Web Page as shown in the next screenshot. Note that this screenshot is taken from the Player, so that you can see how images are handled in the Player.

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Note that the text flows around the image. You will see that there is a little more space to the right of the image than there is above it. This is to leave room for a scrollbar.

Creating independent Web Pages

In the previous section, we looked at how to use a Web Page to add information to the Concept pane of a content object. In this section, we will look at how to use Web Pages to provide information in other areas.

Observant readers will have noticed that a Web Page is in fact an independent content object itself. When you created a Web Page to attach to a Concept pane, you edited this Web Page in its own tabbed editor and saved it to its own folder (our Assets folder). Hopefully, you also noticed that in addition to the Create new web page button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5), the Concept pane also has a Create link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) that can be used to attach an existing Web Page to the Concept pane. It should, therefore, come as no surprise to learn that Web Pages can be created independently of the Concept pane. In fact, the Concept pane is only one of several uses of Web Pages.

To create a Web Page that is independent of a Concepts pane (or anything else), carry out these steps.

  1. In the Library, navigate to the folder in which you want to store the Web Page. In our example, we are saving all of the Web Pages for a module in a sub-folder called Assets within the course folder.
  2. Select menu option File|New|Web Page. A Web Page Editor tabbed page is opened up on the Developer screen. The content and use of this is exactly as described above in the explanation of how to create a Web Page from within an Outline.
  3. Enter the required information into the Web Page, and format it as required. We have already covered most of the available options, above.
  4. Once you have made your changes, click on the Save button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5). You will be prompted to select the destination folder (which will default to the folder selected in Step 1, although you can change this) and a file name. Refer to the description of the Save As dialog box above for additional help if necessary.
  5. Close the Web Page Editor.

You have now created a new Web Page. Now let's look at how to use it.

Using Web Pages in Topics

If you recall our long-running exercise on maintaining your SAP user profile, you will remember that we ask the user to enter their last name and their first name. These terms may be confusing in some countries—especially in countries where the "family name" actually comes before the "given name"—so we want to provide some extra explanation of some common name formats in different countries, and how these translate into first name and last name. We'll provide this information in a Web Page, and then link to this Web Page at the relevant place(s) within our Topic.

First, we need to create the Web Page. How to do this is explained in the section Creating independent Web Pages, above. For our exercise, our created Web Page is as follows:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

There are two ways in which you can link to a Web Page from a Topic. These are explained separately, below.

Linking via a hyperlink

With a hyperlink, the Web Page is linked from a word or phrase within the Bubble Text of a Frame. (Note that it is only possible to do this for Custom Text because you can't select the Template Text to hyperlink from.) To create a hyperlink to a Web Page from within a Frame in a Topic, carry out the steps described below:

  1. Open up the Topic in the Topic Editor.
  2. Navigate to the Frame from which you want to provide the hyperlink. In our exercise, we will link from the Explanation Frame describing the Last name field (this is Frame 5B).
  3. In the Bubble Properties pane, select the text that you want to form the hyperlink (that is, the text that the user will click on to display the Web Page).
  4. Click on the Bubble text link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) in the Bubble Properties pane. The Bubble Text Link Properties dialog box is displayed.
  5. Click on the Create link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to create a link to an existing Web Page (you could also click on the Create new web page button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to create a new Web Page if you have not yet created it). The Insert Hyperlink dialog box is displayed, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  6. Make sure that the Document in Library option is selected in the Link to: bar.
  7. In the Look in: field, navigate to the folder containing the Web Page (the Assets folder, in our example).
  8. In the file list, click on the Web Page to which you want to create a hyperlink.
  9. Click on the Open button.
  10. Back in the Bubble Text Link Properties dialog box, click on OK.

This hyperlink will now appear as follows, in the Player:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Note that there is no ToolTip for this hyperlink. There was no opportunity to enter one in the steps above, so UPK doesn't know what to use.

Version Difference

In OnDemand 8.7 the Infoblock name was used as the ToolTip, but this is not the case from OnDemand 9.x onwards.

Linking via an icon

It is possible to link a Web Page from an icon (a small image) that is displayed in the bubble. The (primary) advantage of this approach is that you do not need to have custom text in the Bubble, to link from.

To insert a link to a Web Page via an icon, carry out the steps described below:

  1. Open up the topic in the Topic Editor.
  2. Navigate to the Frame from which you want to provide the hyperlink. In our exercise, we will link from the explanation Frame describing the First name field (this is Frame 3).
  3. Click on the Show/Hide Frame Link Properties button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) on the Standard Toolbar. The Frame Link Properties dialog box is displayed, as shown below:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  4. Click on the Create link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to create a link to an existing Web Page (you could also click on the Create new web page button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to create a new Web Page if you have not yet created it). The Insert Hyperlink dialog box is displayed, as shown in the previous example.
  5. Make sure that the Document in Library option is selected in the Link to: bar.
  6. In the Look in: field, navigate to the folder containing the Web Page (the Assets folder, in our example).
  7. In the file list, click on the Web Page to which you want to create a hyperlink.
  8. Click on the Open button.
  9. Back in the Bubble Text Link Properties dialog box, click on the drop-down button for the Icon field, and select the icon that you want to use. There are several to choose from.

    You can also use your own images by adding them to the Custom Package contained in the System/Icons/Custom folder in the Library. Custom images must be 22 x 22 pixels in size.

  10. In the Tooltip field, over-type the default (and unimaginative) Link with a suitable value (such as International name forms, in our example). Your Frame Link Properties dialog box should now look as follows:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  11. Close the Frame Link Properties dialog box (or click on the Show/Hide Frame Link Properties button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) on the Standard Toolbar again) to hide this dialog box again.

This hyperlink will now appear in the player as follows:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Note the ToolTip for the hyperlink. This now shows the text that was specified in the Bubble Text Frame Link Properties dialog box.

Linking files through the use of Packages

UPK allows you to import external files into your Library, so that you can then link to these files from your content objects. Technically, external files are imported into Packages within UPK, although they are always referenced individually. That is, links to files are always to the individual file; you cannot create a link to a Package.

Packages are conceptually similar to ZIP files, in that they can contain multiple files. They can also contain only a single file. Whether you choose to store each external file in its own Package, or group all files (for example, for a course) into a single Package is your choice; it makes absolutely no difference to UPK. However, from a transparency of organization point of view, it makes sense to keep each external file in its own appropriately-named Package, except for files that are always accessed as a group (such as a complete web site, or an Articulate Presenter presentation), where it would be best to store all of the files in a single package.

Version Difference

For readers familiar with OnDemand 8.x / UPK 2.x and earlier, Packages are the new, improved form of file Infoblocks.

External files can be used for a number of purposes, and in a number of places. Some of these options are described below:

  • To provide a data sheet for a Know It! mode verification test. This is an interesting option if you also completely remove Know It? mode Bubble Text from the exercise. Note that here, you would need to make sure that the link to the external file is via a hyperlink in text that is tagged to appear in Know It? mode, otherwise the linked document will not be available.
  • To provide an image of equipment related to an exercise.
  • To provide a related document, for example, a vendor's invoice for a simulation that involves entering an invoice into the application.
  • To provide the presentation for the training course to which the simulations relate.

For our example, we will use the last of these examples. We will provide access to a presentation from the exercises. As you will see, there are a number of ways that we can do this. However, linking to the course presentation from the exercises is back-to-front. Logically, you should link to the exercises from the presentation. To make things interesting and to demonstrate the concept of having multiple files within a single Package, we will import a presentation that has been published into Flash format via Articulate Presenter. This published format consists of many files (at least one per slide, plus navigational elements) all of which are launched from a single file (player.html), which makes it an ideal candidate for using in a Package. There are three steps that we need to carry out:

  1. Create a Package in UPK
  2. Add the Articulate Presenter player to the Package
  3. Link the Package into our content objects

Let's look at each of these in turn.

Creating a Package

In order to be able to link to a file from within UPK, you first need to create a Package to contain the file. To create a Package, carry out the steps described below:

  1. In the Library, navigate to the folder in which you want to store the Package. For our exercise, this will be the Assets sub-folder of our Introduction to SAP course folder.
  2. Select menu option File|New|Package. The Package Editor is opened on the UPK Developer screen, as shown in the following screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  3. In the Name field of the Properties pane, over-type default name of New Package with a suitable name for the Package. If you do not have the Properties page opened, then you can click the Properties button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) now to display it, or you can just wait until the next step where you will be prompted to specify a name when you save the Package. For our exercise, we will name the Package Presentation, as it will contain the presentation for our course.
  4. Click on the Save button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to save your changes to the Package, and then (if you are finished with the Package for now) close the Package Editor.

Adding files to a Package

We now have a package. The next thing to do is to add files to the Package. To do this, carry out the steps described below:

  1. Make sure that the package to which you want to add the files is open in the Package Editor (see above).
  2. You will notice that there is an Add Files button, on the right of the tabbed page header (see the previous screenshot for an example of this). If you click on this then the standard (file) Open dialog box is displayed, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  3. In this dialog box, you can navigate to, and select the file that you want to include in the Package. Unfortunately, the Open dialog box only allows you to select individual files (although you can include multiple files at the same time by-as usual in Windows-holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on multiple files, or by holding down the Shift key and clicking on the first and last files in a range of files). For our example, we want to include the full Articulate Presenter version of our course, which consists of a player.html file and two folders containing the presentation itself. The Open dialog box does not let us select entire folders for inserting into our Package, so we need to do something else. Close the Open dialog box if you have it open.
  4. Open up Windows Explorer in a new window and navigate to the folder containing the files and folders that you want to add to the Package. Select all of these (again, hold down the Ctrl or Shift key to select multiple files and/or folders). Then click on the selected objects, and drag them onto the Package Editor in the UPK Developer window. Then, release the mouse button, to drop them into the package. Repeat this step to add more files to the package, as required.
  5. Click the Save button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5) to save your changes to the package, and then close the Package Editor tabbed page.

Your package should now look similar to the one shown in the next screenshot:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Note that the folders are imported as-is. That is, all files within the folders, and any sub-folders, will be imported but kept within the folder. This is important as it means that any relative links within these files will still work. This is extremely useful (in fact, essential) for importing entire web sites, or, as is the case in our example, a suite of interlinked files that make extensive use of relative links.

Linking a Package into a content object

The final step is to link the Package into a content object. You can link it via a hyperlink or an icon, just as we did for Web Pages above (see the section Using Web Pages in Topics), but there is something much more interesting that we can do. Essentially, we will link the Package (or, specifically, a file within the Package) into the Contents pane of an Outline element. Given that we have put the entire presentation for our course in the Package, it would make sense to link this into the Contents page of the highest-level course Outline element. Let's look at how to do this, and what it will do for us.

Although you can link a Package via a hyperlink or an icon, icons are not displayed in Know It? mode. If you want a file within a package to be available in Know It? mode, you must link it via a text hyperlink.

To link a Package into the Contents pane for an Outline element, carry out the following steps:

  1. Open the outline element to which you want to add the Package, in the Outline Editor, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  2. Click on the Create link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5). The Insert Hyperlink dialog box is displayed, as shown below:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  3. Make sure that the Type field at the bottom of the dialog box specifies either Packages and Web Pages or Packages.
  4. Navigate to and select the Package that you created earlier. In our example, this is a Package named Presentation.
  5. Double-click on the Package to open it (or click on it to select it and then click on the Open button). A list of all of the files and folders within the Package is displayed, as shown in the next screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  6. Click on the file within the Package to which you want to link. In our example, we want to link to the main index file of the Articulate Presentation, which is the player.html file, so we will click on this file to select it.
  7. Click on the Open button.
  8. Click on the Save button to save your changes to the Outline object, and then exit from the Outline Editor tabbed page.

We have now successfully linked a file within a Package to a content object. In case you missed that, we have linked a file within a package to a content object. You cannot link to a package as a whole; only to a specific, single file within a package. (Although if you absolutely needed to link to an entire package then you could bundle the package as a ZIP file and then add that ZIP file to a package, and link to the ZIP file. Now, let's look at what this gives us in the Player:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

You can see that the complete Articulate Presentation has been incorporated into the overall UPK Player. This is fully-functional: you can use the navigation bar on the left to locate and select slides; you can execute any Quizmaker learning activities included in the presentation, and so on. The only problem is that some of the text is a little small.

If you insert an Articulate Presentation (or similar package) into your Outline and this is set to auto-play, then it will start playing as soon as the user opens the outline element to which it is attached. In the example above, this is the first element in the hierarchy, so the package will start playing as soon as the trainee opens the Player. This may catch them unawares, and they may miss the start of the presentation. In this case, remove the auto-advance from the first slide in the presentation, and add a button called "Play" (or something equally obvious) that has an action of "Next Slide". Then, the presentation will not start playing until the trainee clicks on the "Play" button.

Generally, I would not advocate including a presentation in a Concept pane. Exercises are components of presentations, so presentations should link to exercises, and not the other way round. However, the above example does at least demonstrate the possibilities that UPK offers for "improving" the trainee's learning experience through the creative use of Packages.

Linking to a URL

In the previous section of this article, we looked at how to link to a presentation included in a Package, from the Concept pane of an outline element in our course. We used an example whereby we linked to a PowerPoint presentation that had been converted to Macromedia Flash via Articulate Presenter, and saw how this presentation would be launched within the Concept pane itself.

Although this initially seems like quite a cool thing to do, in fact the presentation is too small for effective use. In addition, we have the problem that if the presentation changes, we need to delete the old version from our Package, and then copy in the new version.

If the presentation already exists outside of our UPK Library, then a better option would simply be to provide a link to the presentation. True, the trainee will have to click on the link to display the presentation, but at least the presentation will be displayed at a sensible size, in its own window. And if the presentation changes (on whatever server it is hosted), our link will automatically point to the latest version (assuming that the new version of the presentation was published to the same location as the old version). So let's look at how to do that.

If your presentation does not exist outside of UPK, and you are using UPK as your primary content repository, then it may make more sense to attach the presentations in the Concepts panes (possibly split by module).

In order to provide a link to an object that is located outside of the UPK server, you need to know the URL of the object. Although in this example we will be linking to the player.html file for an Articulate Presenter presentation, you can actually link to anything that has a URL: a file on your local LAN share, an intranet site, or even a web site on the Internet. You just need to make sure that the trainees will have access to the site to which the URL points, at the time that they access the Player. In particular, you should consider interference from corporate firewalls that may block access, and think about trainees who may not be network connected when they attend the training.

To provide a link to an external object via its URL, carry out the following steps:

  1. Open the content object from which you want to provide the link. This can be a Web Page attached to a Concepts pane (or attached to anything else, really), or a Topic. For our sample exercise, we will provide a link from text in a Web Page.
  2. Select the text that you want to form the link (that is, that the user will click on in order to display the linked object).
  3. If you are linking from a Web Page, select menu option Insert|Hyperlink. If you are linking from Custom Text in a Bubble, click on the Create Link button (Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5). The Insert Hyperlink dialog box is displayed.
  4. Click on the URL button on the left-hand side of the dialog box. The dialog box is updated to show an Address field, as shown in the following screenshot:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

  5. Enter the URL of the object to which you want to link in the Address field, and then click on the Go button to the right of the Address field.
  6. To provide a ToolTip, right-click on the hyperlinked text and select Hyperlink Properties from the context menu. The following dialog box is displayed:

    Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

    Enter the required ToolTip in the Tooltip field (in our example, we will use the text "Presentation"), and then click on OK.

  7. Save the Web Page, and close it.

We now have a link to an external object (in our case, the Articulate Presentation). In the Player, this will appear as shown in the next screenshot:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

If the trainee clicks on this link, then the external object (in our case, an Articulate Presentation) will be displayed in a separate browser window, as shown in the following screenshot:

Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5

Summary

This article explained how to improve the quality of simulations by using Web Pages and Packages. In other words, it can be achieved by putting Web Pages to good use.
