PDF Maker and Google Docs eLearning Widget

This widget allows to export answers, variables, course data, and other content to a PDF file that the learner can download directly in the course.

The learning experience designer will first design the layout of the PDF document and add placeholders for the variable values. Once the learner accesses the course, she is able to download the PDF file containing the data generated in the course.

There is also an option to use a Google Docs file as a source for the PDF. This allows the designer to be in complete control of the document contents and styling.
