Using Clips to display timers

Using Clips, it's possible to show your learners how much time they spent on a page or chapter or how much time they have left to complete a page or chapter. Clips are added directly to text boxes and can be seamlessly integrated into your text content. For more information about Clips and how they work, see Feature Focus: Personalize a learning experience by using Clips.
