The flashcards feature allows for an interactive way to teach learners content and give them
something more visually interesting to look at and interact with. You can insert text or images on the front and back of card. The learner just simply has to hover over each card to flip it.
The editing panel for flashcards is a slide-out pop up where you can easily edit the content of the front and back of each card and select the style for each one.
The sorting activity allows learners to correctly sort information defined categories. Learners will drag and drop the items into the correct category.
Editing cards and categories is done by simply editing and adding items inside each category box. That’s how the system keeps track of whether the learner’s responses are correct or not.
The learner’s view will show them whether or not they sorted each item into the correct
category or not.
The image hotspot feature allows for a great learning tool when trying to teach details through an image. You can create hotspots to highlight different areas of an image.
Learners can click on each hotspot to see the content.
Editing the content will display a slide-out pop up that allows the title and content to be
edited. The image can be replaced through the slide-out panel.
New hotspots can be added and the hotspots order can also be rearranged.
Ordering and Sequencing
This interactive feature allows learners to organize items in a certain order, whether it’s
chronologically, alphabetically, etc. You can set the instructions for how they’re supposed
to be sequenced.
Editing the content will display a slide-out pop up that allows the items content to be edited.
You are also required to set the correct order of the items so that the learn will know if they
have placed them in the correct order or not.
The learner will see messages that indicate if their choices were correct or incorrect.
