What is the Drag and Drop template?

The ‘Drag and Drop’ template allows you to challenge your learners’ knowledge by asking them to drag images onto their correct descriptions or labels. This makes the ‘Drag and Drop’ template perfect for testing visual recognition.

The ‘Drag and Drop’ template is available as a challenge, checkpoint question, or quiz question template. The example provided in this article demonstrates how to use it as a challenge template within a lesson.

Note: Before you begin creating your ‘Drag and Drop’ Template, you’ll need to prepare your image or images - view the recommended image sizes here.

How do I use the Drag and Drop template?

Step 1: Select the ‘Drag and Drop’ Template from the ‘Interactive/Challenge’ panel.

Step 2: Drag your ‘Drag and Drop’ Template into the Lesson Pathway. You will be prompted to give your new screen a title.

Step 3: Click the ‘Edit’ button.

Step 4: From the edit screen, you can choose to change your title, and enter a description. A description is optional and will appear under your title if you chose one.

Note: Don’t forget to save your changes using the blue ‘Save’ button when you’re finished.

Step 5: To start building your ‘Drag and Drop’ Template, select the blue ‘Add new question’ button.

Step 6: Once you're in the ‘Creating New Item’ screen, select an image for your first question by clicking the ‘Add Image’ button - Note: view the recommended image sizes here.

Secondly, select whether you’d like your question to be a fake answer. If you select this option, the image will appear on the screen as an option but will not have a correct answer, meaning that the images to drag will outnumber the correct answers. This will make your template harder to complete.

Lastly, in the ‘Text’ box, write the answer to your image. This will be the text that the image will need to be dragged onto to get the question right.

Note: When you’re finished making changes, don’t forget to press the blue checkmark button to save your changes.

Note: To add additional questions, simply repeat the process.

You can re-order each item by using the ‘drag and drop’ handles on the left. The order they’re displayed in here is the order that will be displayed to learners.

Step 7: To preview your interactive template, click on the ‘preview’ icon.
