Interacting with the user
Apart from drag and drop, which uses a Java applet, all of the question formats use Dynamic HTML features to present customised feedback directly underneath the question. This will involve you in entering details into the HTML, although this is easy to do and well-documented.
To create a question, load the appropriate file from the templates folder, amend it to your requirements and save it in your current module folder.
If your users are going to be viewing your pages in Netscape Navigator, you may also have to alter the pagey attribute in the layer tag, towards the bottom of the HTML, which specifies how far down the page the feedback appears.
The naming of files is extremely important and follows a strict
format. Questions should be saved in the form lpxpgy.htm, where x
is the current learning point and y the page number. The page title must be in the form module x-y/n, where module is the folder of
the current module, x is the learning point, y the page number and n the
number of pages in the learning point, for example samples 3-4/10.
