Adding a Library Research Guide to Your Canvas Course

collapsible text code

The key here is the code. Here's an example of what you can do (look at the html to see how it works):

Browsing the Stacks

And here's how you do it: 

You need this first set of script just once in your code:

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
function toggleMe(a){
var e=document.getElementById(a);
if(!e)return true;
} else {"none"
return true;
// ]]></script>

And you need this next set for each item you want to collapse (the things in red are CRITICAL the rest, well...).  

<p><a onclick="return toggleMe('Brainstorm')"><b>Browsing the Stacks</b></a></p>
<div id="Brainstorm" style="display: none;" mce_style="display:none"><b> </b> <span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Break up sentences or long phrases </span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">into</span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"> separate search terms. Write down initial search term ideas. Add to this list as you search and encounter other potential search terms. Cross off terms that aren't working.</span></span><br /><br /></div>

The 'Brainstorm' in the first line and the "Brainstorm" in the second tell the computer what to point to - very important.  Call it whatever you want it to be in your guide but they have to be the exact same.  The rest is text and code for that text - which you can change as you need.

Happy to help if you can't make it work.  The key is to not mess around with the code too much - just changing your text as necessary.
