Hi Merlyn,

The purpose for providing additional options is so that the learner has to choose from multiple options. Obviously, you certainly don't need to do this, but it can come in handy. For example, say you're working with a question and there is an answer you think learners may choose if they weren't paying attention to the subject material. You could provide an additional option to show them that while it's related to the material, that is not the correct answer.

This can be useful if you know that certain students make a common mistake, or confuse one answer with another. It can help with clearing this up and give you the opportunity to relay to the learner that they should choose the correct answer.

For the "swivel icon" are you referring to the marker that shows up, once the hotspot has been selected or the learner clicks on the image?

If so, I'm not aware of any options for modifying this option. I do agree that the "pulsing" color is difficult to see against a white background. However, the black usually shows up quite well. If you're concerned about this, it might help to alter the background color slightly (may be to a light gray?) so that it shows up a little more.

I did not really understand your reply regarding multiple hotspots. Surely there can only be one standard incorrect feedback prompt if you click anywhere outside the correct hotspot.

Additionally, why can you only set a correct "by choice" feedback for any hotspot, when there can only be one correct answer.

Would it be better to able to set incorrect "by choice" feedback prompts?
