Image multiple drop targets shapes as correct answers in StoryLine

I would like to be able to do a drag drop quiz in StoryLine however allowing images to be dropped in to many rectangle shapes and still be correct. Unfortunately the Edit Drag Drop feature only seems to allow a one to one correct drag drop relationship. I was trying to make an electronic circuit diagram quiz with drag drop components, but it only works to a limited extent.

i.e. If I have 3 identical images of horizontal wires I want them to be able to be dragged to any of the 3 rectangles designated for the wire connections. etc... I created a drag drop grid of rectangles to form a circuit board grid for this purpose. For a correct answer to register, I'm currently restricted to drag dropping the wire into its exact designated rectangle shape and not the other shapes also designated for wires.

Can this limitation be overcome? Perhaps a product feature upgrade? for this option to allow multiple drop targets as correct targets and not just one drop target as correct.

Thanks Mike and Rebecca. The second example looks like it might be a bit easier to implement.

SUB PROBLEM 1. I've deleted a window somehow and can't get it back. It was that window that allows you to set the drag drop relationships. Thus I'm not able to do anything at present.

WISHLIST: Ultimately it might be easier if they could implement a programmatic solution to this type of quiz, rather than the end user having to go through all the setup. I suggest a dynamic array list for each target object that has as list of drop objects that it will accept. The user would then simply add a drop object name to the target objects drop list. At run time each target object would check to see if the object dropped is on its accept list. I think that would make it real easy from a user perspective to then make these kinds of quizzes. That way it would become a specific product feature, rather than using the work arounds that are great but, seem to require a bit more advanced knowledge on usage, than what I have in the few days I've been using it.  Anyway that's my thought on it.

re; StoryLine SUB PROBLEM 1. I've deleted a window somehow and can't get it back. It was that window that allows you to set the drag drop relationships. i.e. window titled "Drag and Drop Question - Articulate Storyline" Thus I'm not able to do anything at present.

Hmm. I think I see how I have got confused, but not sure how to get around it.

1. I was initially using QuizMaker to do the drag drop quiz after seeing this example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt5gJGwVCmA  QuizzMaker allowed me to go to Form View to view this form and make drag drop relationship changes if required.

2. Then I moved to the StoryLine product because of its ability to bypass the Submit button. Problem is that there does not appear to be a Form View in StoryLine. Thus the QuizMaker example seems more difficult to implement in StoryLine in terms of getting that Form View back. In StoryLine you seem to get the Drag and Drop Quiestion relationship form once only at the start just after you convert it to Freeform mode and if you close it, it seems to be gone forever.

Is there a way of recovering this  "Drag and Drop Question - Articulate Storyline" form view in StoryLine so you can edit the drag drop relationships between objects?

Hi David,

Storyline works a little differently than Presenter in terms of "views."

When you say you're missing the Drag and Drop Question relationship form, are you referring to this?

If so, you can access it again by clicking the Edit Drag and Drop button from the side panel, outlined in red. If you're not seeing that panel, it may be because you accidentally "minimized" it by dragging the narrow border, indicated in yellow in the screen shot.

If that happened, this support page describes how to get the panel back.

Please shout out with any questions.

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for this explanation. Yes That is the form I could not get visible in StoryLine. i.e. the one you have posted. I could see it once when I added the object but not after I closed the form. i,.e. I could not see how to get the Drag drop relationship form back. I think I clicked something that caused this side panel to disappear or minimise and I can't see how to get the objects side panel back.  

Anyway I will take a look at your information and get back to you.

Also if there is a demo screen recording or illustrated explanation on how to set this muti drop quiz up, that would be great. If it's easy to do, I will be recommending this to our management for this type of quiz.

WISHLIST ITEM

As mentioned, my longer term as a wishlist / suggestion product enhancement item, is an image drop grid quiz object, which would be really cool. Thus allowing me to say define a grid of x,y dimensions and cell size for image objects to be dropped into. Each cell could accept any of the image objects, simply by drop list selection.

This drop grid object would then be processed at quiz run time, just like other quiz controls. With this we could more easily do various image placement quizzes such as Jigsaw puzzles, electronic circuit boards and more. I think this could be a fantastic addition to what is already a very good product. Of course it would need to be SCORM compliant and be able to update the Moodle grade book as per normal. I'm very enthusiastic about this capability as I think it offers great potential as a learning tool.

Much appreciated.

Hi Rebecca,

Yes that seems to have fixed it. Thanks for your help. Also if there is a video demo screen recording or illustrated explanation on how to set this muti drop quiz up, that would be great. If it's easy to do, I will be recommending this to our management for this type of quiz. This multi-drop images in more than one target object as correct answers, is the functionality I seek.

Much appreciated.

Hi David,

I responded on the other page where you posted asking about a video for a D&D with mulitple drop targets, but figured in case anyone arrives at this site I'd post here as well.

Here's a youtube video I created ... please shout out with any questions

And here's a sample of the story
