Question about an ungraded drag-and-drop activity
Jul 02, 2012
Question: Is there a way to make an item draggable without having an action associated with the drag/drop?
Context: I'm creating a drag and drop activity from scratch (not using the question wizard). On the slide, the student is arranging his/her priorities in order. Because it is based on student preference, there is no right or wrong answer. As such, I don't need a typical drag/drop action, such as changing a state or displaying a layer with feedback. I just want the student to be able to drag a text box to one of three "buckets" and leave it there without anything happening.
Current solution: Right now, I am using an unnecessary action to get the "draggability" of the text box. The action is to change the state of the text box to normal (it is already normal, so nothing changes) when the item is dropped on one fo the three buckets.
Any other ways to make the item draggable without setting up the unnecessary action?
