This page is for addressing common technical difficulties students may experiencing when utilizing Mrs. Koller's webpage, the online textbook, or completing projects using technology.

Prezi

  • When I try to write, the screen zooms in or out.
    • Click "shift."  This should lock the screen. 
  • My picture doesn't show up to insert into my Prezi.
    • The picture must be in PDF or JPEG (JPG) format.  Copy and paste it into paint and save it as JPEG.
  • I can't get the item as small as I want it.
    • Make it as small as you can, release it, then grab it again and make it smaller.  Just keep making it smaller in steps.
  • I want to turn the screen because it hurts my neck to keep tilting my head.
    • Hold "3" or "4" until the screen spins to the orientation you want.

Quia

OpenOffice

Files on this Website

  • I can't get the rubric to open properly and/or the formatting is off when I open it.
    • You need to open it using a spreadsheet program.  Use Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc.

 

Online Textbook

  • The chapter I clicked is the wrong topic.
    • Double check whether you clicked the chapter or the unit.  Units are listed first; chapters are below them.
  • When I open an online activity, I see a blank square.
    • Update your flash player.
