Below is a list of recommended best practices in preparing your Word document to be used in i GET IT. These are mainly recommendations to get the best training material and are not required for uploading into i GET IT, but are best practices to make you a better author.
Remove Page Numbers
It is recommended to remove page numbers from your Word document before uploading into i GET IT. This will avoid confusion between a page number in your Word document and the i GET IT course page numbers.
Set Header and Footer on One Page
it is recommended to keep the header and footer to just one page, such as the first or last page. i GET IT converts the Word document uploaded into one single course page. For example, if you have a 10 page Word document, this would end up being one continuous page in i GET IT, very much like a PDF works. If a header or footer is placed on all the pages, you may get unexpected results after conversion.
Break Documents into Multiple Documents
i GET IT converts a Word document into one page for use in a course. To keep the length of the page reasonable and to take advantage of the course structure (and table of contents), it is recommended to keep your documents smaller and broken up by topic. This also makes editing and managing much easier later.
Use a Template for Consistency
It is highly recommended to use a template while creating your documents, much like we do while creating the i GET IT online training materials. Create a common layout for sections, font, colors, logos, etc... will make your materials more readable. We recommend the following template types:
