Other FreeStyler Features¶
FreeStyler provides several export filters. It supports a PDF export as well as several image file formats like jpg, png and gif. It is also possible to send the document directly as an email or directly upload the document to the learning management system Moodle.
Another feature that is worth to mention is the possibility connecting FreeStyler to a learning object repository called CoLOR to store and to retrieve FreeStyler documents. For this purpose the documents contain semi-automatically created metadata. The repository can be queried from within FreeStyler taking the metadata into account. The dialog for this purpose is shown here. Thus it is possible to query for concepts in the description rather than for elements in the document’s content. The repository is also capable of querying for similar document providing the user with the opportunity to discover other persons’ solutions to similar problems.
