Another popular freeform question is the Hotspot. Hotspots are great if you want to test a learner's ability to point out certain elements on a screen shot or a graphic. In this movie, I will build a Hotspot question that asks By default, I'm taken to Form View, but I like to start my Freeform questions in Slide View.

Creating a Hotspot question

Another popular freeform question is the Hotspot. Hotspots are great if you want to test a learner's ability to point out certain elements on a screen shot or a graphic. In this movie, I will build a Hotspot question that asks the learner to identify a specific element in a residential photovoltaic system. To get started building a Hotspot from Question View, select Freeform Question and then Hotspot, and then select Insert. By default, I'm taken to Form View, but I like to start my Freeform questions in Slide View. Basically, I like to create the question and the graphics first before I set the Hotspots.

So I'll head on over to Slide View. The first thing I usually do when building a question, right click off the slide. Select layout. Question layout. That way, I get a properly formatted text box into which I place my question. Let me make this. Text box not so wide. It doesn't need to be. I'll format it a bit, select center. Arrow it over. And I might even turn on the Grid and Guides real quickly, right click off the slide, grid and guides, display grid on screen, select okay.

Hold down the Ctrl and just right arrow just a bit. bbb Okay. Turn off the Grid and Guides now. bbb Now it's time to insert the image. Go up to Insert > Picture. Here's my image right here, the residential solar system. Select it, select Open. Now arrow it down just a bit. Okay, now I'll go to Form View, so I can insert the hotspot. So, under the Add Hotspot Areas section here, I've already chosen the image.

You can see it right here. Now, we just need to add the Hotspot, so I'll select this drop down. Three types you can choose from: Oval, rectangle, free form. I'll go with oval. And then you have this little cross hairs. I'll click and drag over the inverter right there and then when I'm done I'll let go and you'll see the oval hotspot has been added and that is the correct. Choice. Admittedly, that's a little tough to see, right? So, let's go to Slide View, get a better picture of it, and with these hot spots, you know, you can move it around if you want.

You can make it bigger or smaller, pretty flexible. bbb Now, I'll go back to Form View, so I can insert some correct. Feedback. Going to the feedback, we'll click in here. Get rid of that second sentence. And I've got the feedback in my clipboard so I'll select Control V. Add a little bit more. I'll say that's right too. Regarding scoring options up top here. I'll set the attempts at two. Now, let's preview this. If I get it wrong the first time I'll click on the meter.

Just right there. OK, a little bit of feedback, now we'll get it right? Great. It's working as it should. Freeform quiz types such as the Hotspot really give you the opportunity to insert graphic information in your quizzes. Maybe you work with products a good deal and want your learner to be able to point out certain elements of the products. Or, maybe you work with software and want to test learners on where they click next in the process. In either case, a Hotspot is a useful tool.
