1st NOVEMBER 2013- SAVING VUE MAPS FOR VARIOUS PURPOSES

Dear friends,

As informed in the concluding presentation session in the Workshop please find  ways to save VUE presentations:

IMPORTANT:

Any time that you want to publish a VUE map that

contains  ATTACHED  files, use the File > Save As VPK

(VUE Package) choice.

Saving

Once a VUE map has been created, it can be saved in a variety of forms.

Select the File > Save As command

When the  Save as dialog box opens , open the box below the file name  ( a screenshot is enclosed below)to bring up the  following choices:

Saving  a VUE Map

VUE: VUE files can be saved on the VUE site or to a drive.

The user needs to have VUE installed to open this file.

VPK (VUE package): This is the best format to share maps, especially the ones with resources.

It collates all the resources, places them in a single (compressed-zipped) folder with the map, and changes the path to the resources to be relative to the map within the folder. This allows the movement of a map with its resources from one computer to another. VUE can open .vpk maps and.vpk maps can also be unzipped .

Interactive Web Graphic – HTML: Saves the VUE map as an HTML file. The benefit of this choice is that the resources remain clickable, so that resource materials within the map can be accessed. The HTML file can then be published to a website.

PDF: Converts the map to Portable Document Format so that the map can be opened on most any operating system.
See additional PDF saving choices under File > Export Handouts and Notes (PDF).

JPEG: This is an image file format. Saving the VUE map as an image file allows someone without the VUE software to view the map.

PNG: Portable Network Graphics, a bit-mapped graphics format.

IMS Resource List – XML: The XML choice, or IMS Resource List, is a technical standard file type for educational technology systems. This choice enables the re-use and sharing of the content (concept maps) created. In the case of VUE, saving a concept map in IMS standard, such as Content Package or list enables other systems that understand IMS standards to re-use the concept maps.
