Looking to get some feedback on an activity

Hi all,

I have a client who has requested a drag and drop activity. I don't develop these frequently so I wanted to get some feedback from the community on this.

Note: this will not be a graded question. This is simply a retention exercise. Do you think it is intuitive enough? Are the instructions sufficient to complete the exercise. 

Thanks,

Ian

Hi, Ian! Looks great. I love the animation at the beginning!!!

I also really like the "tutorial" that you show. I feel like it lingers a bit longer than I'd like. Maybe you add a "Got it!" button that makes the tutorials go away. Also, I would suggest reinforcing what you want the learner to do by editing the on-screen text. Maybe say "Match the items by dragging..." I hope that makes sense!

Hi Ian -  I like the way you add the correct answers to the boxes on the left . I agree with Tim that the tutorial takes a bit too long. I would make it optional for people who need more guidance and just put simple text instruction on the screen for those who don't. 

Also, I am not sure why you need the submit button since you do not allow the learner to drop an item on an incorrect pillar.  I would remove the submit button and then just have your correct feedback occur once the last item is dropped in place.
