FAQs and Troubleshooting

ClioVis works best in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. If you’re running into any issues then please try updating your browser.

To successfully add an image, you must use a valid image url which usually ends with .jpg or .png. Nothing other than the image should be on the page.

For example:
This won’t work: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln
And this won’t work: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Abraham_Lincoln_O-77_matte_collodion_print.jpg
But this will work: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ab/Abraham_Lincoln_O-77_matte_collodion_print.jpg

Helpful hint:

Wikipedia Commons is a good source for finding useful and usable open  images. Make sure to to click on the image to get the correct URL.

In addition to images, you can now upload audio files. You will find it underneath the image URL section when creating an event. The easiest method for uploading an audio file to your ClioVis presentation is through Audacity. Utilizing Audacity is easy and can add a nice touch to student presentations.

  2. Record your audio file.
  3. Select “File” > “Export” > “Export as WAV”.

  5. Visit Dropbox.com and select “Share” next to the audio file you just saved.
  6. At the bottom of the box, select “Create Link”.
