Rotating Aside Feature Panel

A versatile module that can have multiple uses, this is a good module for the main content on your page, and it is loaded with options. Each panel in a Rotating Aside Feature Panel can have the following elements in this order:

  1. Main Content (REQUIRED)
    1. Content (REQUIRED)
      1. Basic Content
      2. Question and Answer
      3. Tabbed Content
    2. Aside (OPTIONAL)
      1. Multimedia (REQUIRED)
        1. Image (OPTIONAL)
        2. Video (OPTIONAL)
  2. Content (OPTIONAL)
  3. Bottom Button (OPTIONAL)

The Aside has the ability to contain multiple slides moving in and out of view from left to right. The buttons for operating them are below the require images instead of on the sides of the images.

This allows you to provide small chunks of engaging content with calls-to-action that rotate through a carousel feature.

Ideas for Usage

This is the good module for content. Display important information in small (digestible) chunks with appropriate usage of paragraphs, lists, tables, and headings.

  • Feature Students/Faculty/Alum (Testimonials)

  • Feature Programs
  • Feature Career Paths
  • Feature Events

Example Content Module(s)

See the example(s) below for potential solutions for content organization. Please note that not all examples are available as many of these content modules are quite flexible. Contact Web Services for creative solutions.

Champions counter

These images should have a description that aids in their relevance to the content. For example, the Champions Club has multiple amenities for Tarleton students. 

Guys playing the Wii

While images are allowed, use this feature in moderation. A page should not be more than 1-2 MB to load. This takes a long time and discourages visitors from staying.

Slideshows are interactive, but are less effective the more slides you have. Keep these rotating content areas shorter than the typical mobile phone's maximum screen height.

Not many people swipe to this last slide. The content should be engaging, create a purpose for viewing, not merely become a photo album. Photo albums are better suited on social media (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram).

Rotating Aside Feature Panel: Champions Club

In the Champions Club, students can purchase kinesiology gear, class supplies, snacks, and water. They can also get help with Professional Development (PD) points. Student workers in the Champions Club are available to help upload PD points.

The club has a laid back and inviting atmosphere for students to relax and hang out between classes. Students are also able to meet with classmates and utilize the available computers. The Champions Club is located in the Kinesiology Building, Room 102.

  3. are supportive of fellow teachers and administrators; and
  4. are conscious of the extremely important role which teachers play in the lives of young people.

Nominations may be submitted by a Tarleton State University faculty member, mentor teacher, clinical adjunct faculty, or university supervisor. Recipients of the award will be selected by faculty members from our partner school districts and Tarleton State University. The award recipients will be recognized at the conclusion of the clinical teaching semester.
