Billboard settings can be configured and managed by an Admin. The Admin create a Billboard by clicking on Manage Templates on their menu options.
You can then add a Billboard in Public and / or Private Dashboards by clicking on Content and then scrolling until you see the option to Add New Container. Once you add the new container, you can Select Billboard as the Container Type.
(Learn more about the difference between Private and Public Dashboards and how to add and edit them here.)
Once you have created a Billboard, you can further customize it with these features:
- Autoplay: When engaged this will automatically start any Video appearing in a Billboard on the Learner's Dashboard as soon as they advance to that particular item. The default setting for this is 'On'. When set to 'Off' the Learner will see either the Video (Poster) or the opening frame of the media file, depending on the Admin's image choice, after which they will need to manually start the Video using the built-in media player controls.
- Interval: This is the time between Billboard transitions that occurs automatically if the Learner does not use the feature's built-in navigation controls. The default setting for this is 10,000 milliseconds (i.e. 10 seconds).
- Tags: The default setting for the Learner Interface is to only display one set of Billboards at the top of the Dashboard page, which makes the tagging function unnecessary . However, if the Admin wishes to have more than one set of Billboards appear on a Learner's Dashboard then they will need to provide Absorb with the following information: the Tag names they have added and/or used while creating their Billboards; the desired Dashboard location for their additional set of Billboards; and, which Tags to associate with each Billboard location.
