student input in a course

I am beginning development of a teacher training course and wonder what is the best way in SL to allow for students to actually write short story type input and have it submitted?  IE, after working through a student/teacher scenario asking the student to suggest possible solutions to a puzzle or challenge?

I am still very new into SL2 and not sure the best way to lay this out.  Any demos or suggestions VERY appreciated!

Meanwhile, I will start checking the community.  THANK YOU

Hi Sylvia, when you say submitted do you mean graded or just able to be retieved? Or re-displayed to the learner later.  

Have you looked at the essay type quiz question? 

If the latter I created a project that had a notes section at the bottom of each slide and used variables to show all the notes in a johrnal that the leaner could click to view anytime. Let me know if that sounds like something you'd be interested in - might give you some ideas how to structure your file. I'm travelling interstate so won't get to it till later. 

Im sure the community will have lots of ideas for you.

Hi, Sylvia -- Thanks for reaching out with your question! Are you thinking of using a text-entry type format to gather student responses? If you have a file started, it would be great if you could share it here so others in the community are better able to understand what you are looking for and make suggestions. You are also welcome to post over in the Building Better Courses forum for additional design-related input! :)

Hi Sylvia

here is a stripped down version of the project file and published demo.

The Notes link is on the master slide and is a toggle on/off .  The notes panel appears, you type your notes in and they can be displayed and retrieved in a journal (also a link).  You can also email the notes if required.
