I often use Excel to create simple learning objects, especially ones that have an element of drag and drop. Having created my resource, I then tidy it up, so that when viewed over the internet (e.g. if accessed from a VLE) the user wouldn’t realise that it was Excel at all.
To do this I go to the Tools menu, then Options, I then make sure that the View tab is showing before unticking the following options
- Formula bar
- Row and Column Headings
- Sheet Tabs
Then clicking OK – will turn the sometimes cluttered look of Excel into a clean simple tidy learning object
