In Converge, you can create a Page to organize all the various parts of a lesson or project in one place. A page can include instructions, standards, procedures, links for research and embedded, online resources like a Padlet.
To add a Page, start by navigating to the module where you would like to add the page. Then, click the Add button at the bottom of the module.
A new window will pop up, giving you a choice between Activities and Resources. To add a Page, you will choose Resources.
Another window will open with all of the Resource options. Choose Page, and then click Add.
When the Adding a New Page window opens, name your page, and choose an activity image and add a description if desired. You can change these settings at any time.
The next box is for your Page Content, which can include links, images, videos and resources embedded from other places on the web, such as Padlets. Simply start adding text, links and images, which you can copy and paste from another document if needed.
To Embed online resources like Padlets, Symbaloos, HaikuDecks, and Thinglinks, you will need to add the embed code of the resource. To do this, visit the site where you have found or created a resource, then locate and copy the embed code. It will usually be found under the Share menu. For example, in Padlet, you click the Share button on the top of the page.
When the Share options are visible, look for the embed code for the resource. For example, in Padlet, the panel below opens and you will choose Share/Export/Embed and then click Embed in your blog or your website.
This will launch a new window with the code that you need to embed the resource. Click the Copy button below the code.
When you return to your course, click on the Show More Buttons on the Menu Bar to reveal more options. Next, click on the Edit HTML button to reveal the code for your page.
Paste the embed code by right clicking your mouse and choosing Paste. You can also use CTRL+V on a Windows machine, or Command+V on a Mac.
Then, un-click the Edit HTML button. You should see your resource in the page content box now.
When finished adding page content, click Save and Display to view your page.
