General overview

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. However, we would recommend that you keep your files much smaller in size if possible since large file sizes will not produce the best experience for the viewer (due to loading times).

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. If your file is above this size then we recommend that you consider saving your video in a lower resolution (more suitable for viewing on the web) before uploading it. If however you do want to add a larger video file then you can do this by uploading it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YouTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

When you are in the editor then you can edit a tile by clicking on its edit button (in the top right hand corner of the tile). 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button in its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone. 

Some conferences ask their authors to add a video presentation to their ePoster/Stack. A common way that people make video presentations is to use Powerpoint.

If want to make a video presentation using Powerpoint then we recommend following the instructions from Microsoft (see links below) to add a narration to your Powerpoint presentation and then save that as a video file.

Please note that Learning Toolbox does not support .PPSX files, so when you save your presentation as a video you should save it as an MP4 file, not as  a PPSX file.

Please also note that you should choose to save your video in 720p (or internet) resolution (not the 1040p default that Powerpoint offers) as this is the most suitable format for videos playing on the web. Following these instructions will reduce the chance of hitting any upload issues due to the file size.

You can then add the video to your Learning Toolbox ePoster/Stack using the File Tile.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

If you have added a File to your ePoster/Stack using the File Tile and you want to replace that file with an updated version then this is possible.

Return to your ePoster and open it for editing and then follow these steps:

  1. Click on the edit icon in the top right of the File Tile you want to edit ​
  2. Look in the settings area
  3. ​Click on the edit icon next to your uploaded filename

​You will then be able to upload your new file. Once it has uploaded and processed then you should save your stack/ePoster. 

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

In short: Yes, there are legal restrictions. 

You should only upload material that you have permission to add. Even when material is in the public domain (such as websites), you should be careful to ensure that you are not presenting it as if it was your own.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Privacy, Portrait right  and trademarks

This mouse is not protected.

In addition you should consider if depicted contents may be subject to additional copyrights, property rights, trademarks, protrait right, etc. and may require the consent of a third party or the license of these rights. For example the Disney’s image of Mickey Mouse is a protected trademark.

Adding an extra screen/layer to my ePoster/stack

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. However, we would recommend that you keep your files much smaller in size if possible since large file sizes will not produce the best experience for the viewer (due to loading times).

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. If your file is above this size then we recommend that you consider saving your video in a lower resolution (more suitable for viewing on the web) before uploading it. If however you do want to add a larger video file then you can do this by uploading it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YouTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

When you are in the editor then you can edit a tile by clicking on its edit button (in the top right hand corner of the tile). 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button in its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone. 

Some conferences ask their authors to add a video presentation to their ePoster/Stack. A common way that people make video presentations is to use Powerpoint.

If want to make a video presentation using Powerpoint then we recommend following the instructions from Microsoft (see links below) to add a narration to your Powerpoint presentation and then save that as a video file.

Please note that Learning Toolbox does not support .PPSX files, so when you save your presentation as a video you should save it as an MP4 file, not as  a PPSX file.

Please also note that you should choose to save your video in 720p (or internet) resolution (not the 1040p default that Powerpoint offers) as this is the most suitable format for videos playing on the web. Following these instructions will reduce the chance of hitting any upload issues due to the file size.

You can then add the video to your Learning Toolbox ePoster/Stack using the File Tile.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

If you have added a File to your ePoster/Stack using the File Tile and you want to replace that file with an updated version then this is possible.

Return to your ePoster and open it for editing and then follow these steps:

  1. Click on the edit icon in the top right of the File Tile you want to edit ​
  2. Look in the settings area
  3. ​Click on the edit icon next to your uploaded filename

​You will then be able to upload your new file. Once it has uploaded and processed then you should save your stack/ePoster. 

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

In short: Yes, there are legal restrictions. 

You should only upload material that you have permission to add. Even when material is in the public domain (such as websites), you should be careful to ensure that you are not presenting it as if it was your own.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

You should only upload material that you have permission to add. Even when material is in the public domain (such as websites), you should be careful to ensure that you are not presenting it as if it was your own.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

Presenting my ePoster/stack

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. However, we would recommend that you keep your files much smaller in size if possible since large file sizes will not produce the best experience for the viewer (due to loading times).

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

Please note there is a 400MB file size limit on files uploaded using the File Tile. If your file is above this size then we recommend that you consider saving your video in a lower resolution (more suitable for viewing on the web) before uploading it. If however you do want to add a larger video file then you can do this by uploading it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YouTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

When you are in the editor then you can edit a tile by clicking on its edit button (in the top right hand corner of the tile). 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button in its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone. 

Some conferences ask their authors to add a video presentation to their ePoster/Stack. A common way that people make video presentations is to use Powerpoint.

If want to make a video presentation using Powerpoint then we recommend following the instructions from Microsoft (see links below) to add a narration to your Powerpoint presentation and then save that as a video file.

Please note that Learning Toolbox does not support .PPSX files, so when you save your presentation as a video you should save it as an MP4 file, not as  a PPSX file.

Please also note that you should choose to save your video in 720p (or internet) resolution (not the 1040p default that Powerpoint offers) as this is the most suitable format for videos playing on the web. Following these instructions will reduce the chance of hitting any upload issues due to the file size.

You can then add the video to your Learning Toolbox ePoster/Stack using the File Tile.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

If you have added a File to your ePoster/Stack using the File Tile and you want to replace that file with an updated version then this is possible.

Return to your ePoster and open it for editing and then follow these steps:

  1. Click on the edit icon in the top right of the File Tile you want to edit ​
  2. Look in the settings area
  3. ​Click on the edit icon next to your uploaded filename

​You will then be able to upload your new file. Once it has uploaded and processed then you should save your stack/ePoster. 

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

In short: Yes, there are legal restrictions. 

You should only upload material that you have permission to add. Even when material is in the public domain (such as websites), you should be careful to ensure that you are not presenting it as if it was your own.
