4: Interactive Elements

  • Page ID
  • The textbook of the future will be more than traditional textbooks of the past. The LibreText platform is designed to operate with this in mind with multiple interactive technologies available for integration to campus texts.

    • 4.1: Interactive Figures
      Interactive figure and simulations can be found in the Ancillary Materials section of each Library. For example, there are simulations, visularization and interactive figures in the chemistry library here:
    • 4.2: Jupyter Notebooks (Executable Programming Code & Figures)
      The Jupyter system is a powerful aspect to the LibreTexts platform. This tutorial show how to embed Jupyter code in four steps into your text.
    • 4.3: The Hypothesis Annotation System is an open-source software project that aims to collect comments about statements made in any web-accessible content, and filter and rank those comments to assess each statement's credibility. It has been summarized as "a peer review layer for the entire Internet." The hypothesis system is native on all Libretexts libraries and can be accessed via the lurking buttons on the upper right of each page.
    • 4.4: Interactive Molecules & Proteins - Direct Embedding
      An interactive protein/chemical can be embedded into pages via the following steps. A more advanced Molecule Generator is discussed elsewhere.
    • 4.5: Interactive Molecule & Protein - Molecule Generator
      This is the seven-step workflow to embed an interactive protein figure. It is similar for embedding a molecule, but uses the PDB database.
    • 4.6: Interactive Molecule & Protein - Reference Options
      This is a table of options available for optimizing the Interactive Molecules/Proteins
