Best Practices for Building Wixie Activities

Posted by David Wagner on Aug 5, 2014 1:46:11 PM

Over the past 10 years of Pixie and Wixie, we have built a lot of templates and activities for students. Here are some things that we have learned over the years that you will hopefully find helpful in your own templates and activities.

Landscape vs. portrait orientation. It is almost always better to create templates and activities using the default landscape orientation. This layout works best on a variety of devices. Portrait layouts become hard to work with in the workspace of a tablet, so try to use this orientation only when designing templates that will need to be portrait when they are printed.

Wixie Legacy UI is going away this summer

Posted by David Wagner on Jun 9, 2014 2:19:00 PM

The Wixie legacy UI will disappear this summer. For many users this means nothing. They have never seen the legacy UI and they don’t have a hyperlink that lets them switch into it if they want. For some, this just means that a hyperlink that they have never clicked in the upper-right corner next to Settings will no longer be there. For a few, it means they will start using the new UI instead of the one they were trained on over two years ago.
