In "Book" and "Scenes" sections it's possible to annotate portions of text. First of all you have to click ON-OFF button in the Annotation box on the right column.
Once the Manual Annotation is activated, you will see all the annotations highlighted in the text, while in the box on the right you could see all the tags of annotated text (in a cloud). For each tag you could see the frequence of those annotations in the text. There is also a "Update" button, to refresh the cloud. New annotations will become visible only when you update the cloud.
How to annotate text? Select the part of text you want to annotate (a word, a sentence or anything you want to highlight) with mouse or finger (if you're using your tablet). A little label with the word "Annotate" will appear: if you click it, will appear a box where you can type what you want and choose a color for your annotation. To save your annotation, click the "Save" button.
Clicking on an annotation in the cloud, it could be possible see only this one in the text, without others. To come back and see all again, you have to click another time on "Update" button.
To create an annotation with your tablet you have to press your finger on the word you want to annotate, widen the highlighted section if you want to annotate a bigger portion of text, click on "Annotate" button that will appear on the bottom right on the screen, and then insert the text of the note and save the annotation.
If you click on "Book" you can see all the acts of the tragedy, with their incipit. To work on an act you have to open it by clicking on it. To close an act, click the "X" on the right. You can open and close more acts. To zoom or reduce the font size you can use "a-" and "A+" buttons in the lower left of the page.
Every act has a box, on its right, with all scenes contained in the act (box "Scenes"). Every scene is a link, if you click on a scene title you will be redirected to the scene in the "Scenes" section (this could be helpful to focus a specific part of the act you want to explore accurately).
On the right you also have a "Contributions" box, it shows, if there are, documents or images that students have posted, linked to the act you've opened.
You also find a box "Audio" with the reading of the act by a group of actors.
"Scenes" section contains all the scenes the acts are splitted into. Every scene has a short description. To work on a scene, you have to open it by clicking on it. The right boxes contain: a list of characters appearing in that scene, the place where the scene is set, a link to the act where the scene is contained.
When there are more than three characters in a scene, you can see an icon with a "+" and a number, representing how many characters still there are. Clicking on it you can see the whole list of characters acting in the scene.
Even in this section you can annotate text like in the "Book" section.
"Characters" section contains the list of main characters (with their image) and another list with minor characters (only with their name). Clicking on a character, a detail sheet will open on your page. From this sheet you can be redirected to the scenes where the character acts, listed by act ("Where appears"), or you can know who this character talk with ("Cospeakers") and be redirected to scenes where it happens, or you can see places where the character acts ("Places").
In this section it is possible to see tragedy places on a real map (Google map). On the left of the map you can see all the sites organized in a tree. There are places that contain other places (the latter are the locations of the tragedy), you can click on a place and view it on the map thanks to a marker that will appear. You can zoom the map and, if you click on a place marker, you can see all the acts set in this place, and go to the correspondent part of text if you click on an act.
In this section you can see a graph, the social network of the tragedy. In the graph there are some nodes, one for every main character, connected by edges. The size of nodes and edges depends on the importance that a character has in the tragedy, in particular if a node is very big, it means that the character acts and talks a lot in the play, and if a edge is very thick, it means that two characters (connected by the edge) appear together in many scenes and talk a lot with themselves. If you click on a character, you will be redirected to all the scenes he acts and talks.
In this section you can see a word cloud of the words in the tragedy and how frequently they appear in text. You can choose to see the cloud or a table, with all words or without stopwords (like articles, prepositions, etc.), all the words in the play or only the ones in dialogues. In results you can see the "Occurrences" (mentions of the word chosen, in the whole play); "Speeches" (the quoted speeches of a certain caharacter); resources that are in the application related to the word sought, if any (such as images, places, contributions, characters).
This section contains contributions posted by users, i.e. link and descriptions of documents and images found in the Web, about the play. To add a contribution you have to click on "Add" and type required information like title and link (that are mandatory), a comment, the author of content, any publisher and the year of publication.
When you add a contribution related to a character, an act, a particular scene, or a place, you can associate it to that entity, otherwise contribution will be associated to the generic entity "Book".
For each contribution you can see a detail sheet, if you click on the link you will be redirected at the original page of that resource.
This section contains the images gallery. You can see each image with some information (title, author, year, publisher, link to the web page where it's published).
In the upper right menu you can see the list of all the acts of the play (if you click, you can go to the act). There is also an icon that represents bookmarks you can put on each act or scene. You can add a bookmark clicking on the same icon that is on the right when you open an act or scene. Once you add a bookmark, it will appear in the list in the upper right menu. To remove a bookmark you have to click on the trash can near it in the menu list. You can have many bookmarks saved in the list, both of acts or of scenes. The wheel in the menu allows you to change your password or leave the application (logout). The question mark "?" brings you to this guide.
