Case Studies can be used to create an article broken up into sections, each of which can include different types of media. Once a case study has been saved, you can share it directly with other registered users.
Creating a Case Study
You will first need to create a blank Case Study by following these steps:
- Go to your dashboard and select Add new content from the My Content section.
- Select the Case Study content type.
- Enter a title for your case study.
New case studies are automatically set up with 8 sections, but you have the option to add or remove as many as you like. To remove a section, click the 3-dot menu on the right of that section, then click Remove.
To add a new section, scroll to the end of the list and click Add section. You can change the order by dragging and dropping a section to a different place on the list, or using the arrows above and below each number.
Each section of your case study can be edited individually. You can change the title of each section by clicking the existing text.
The Add Textbox* option allows you to enter and save text directly, while the Add rich media option allows you to search for images, videos, or audio from LabXchange’s library or your privately saved content. You can also select Add new content to create a new image, video, or audio file from this menu.
You can continue to add content to the same section by selecting Add new content again after saving each piece.
*For more information about the LabXchange text editor, please see the article for Creating and Editing a Text Asset.
Scroll down further to edit the last optional details to your case study such as the list of authors, subject tags, and featured image.
Your case study is now complete and ready to be saved to your private Library.
