You love WIRIS editor, but have the feeling that it offers too many icons to your users? Do your students need only a fraction of the powerful toolbar?
Don't worry, you can customize all the elements in the toolbar of WIRIS editor.
You can select which tabs, sections, extra sections and items you want to build, gaining thus full configurability of the tool.
MathML is the XML standard for mathematics, a neat and structured way of storing mathematical expressions that allows interchange of contents between different technology providers. MathML is a standard, which means that it is non-proprietary technology and that you spare compatibility problems across providers, platforms, etc.
Try it out
You can start by learning some of the features of WIRIS editor. Take the tour to understand the basics and then you may wish to try it out yourself.
Let us start focusing on the content side, and let us do it with a simple formula. We will make use of basic mathematical symbols, and the point here is how straightforward and fast it is to create a formula with WIRIS editor.
The principles are:
WIRISeditor doesn't forget more applied fields either, such as statistics, chemistry, physics and biology. Most of the units and expressions of any field are fed by Latin and Greek characters, a set that you will find in a dedicated tab in WIRISeditor.
The traditional technology for editing maths contents has been LaTeX for many years. LaTeX is a good technology, but it has several drawbacks: it is no standard and it is thus not been thought for compatibility and most of all, it demands expertise on the side of the user.
It goes without saying that many teachers for mathematics do possess the knowledge to create excellent contents with LaTeX, but it is rarely the case for their students. Moreover, using an editor that spares all technology issues allows students to focus on Mathematics.
WIRIS editor allows you to create about any expression you can imagine in many scientific fields. Specially mathematics, but not only: WIRIS editor has already handled contents for physics, chemistry, statistics and biology.
See the following introductory chapters and you'll know why WIRIS editor is the solution for adding mathematics into your web content:
WIRIS editor allows creating formulas easily, drawing from a large pool of mathematical and scientific symbols with a single click. You work on a WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get) based on tabs and icons, where all you need to do is select symbols, fill in your numbers and names, and accept.
