Adding content is an easy way for teachers to customize any activity to their liking. To add to an activity, go to the Works/Questions page in an activity and mouse over the [+] Insert Content. From here, teachers will be able to see a list of different content formats that can be added to the activity.
Below, is a list of the different question formats that are available for teachers to use when creating their own activity.
- True or False Questions
- Multiple Choice Questions
- Text Questions
- Numeric Questions
- Matching Questions
- Fill-in-the-Blank Questions
- Google Assignments
- Highlight Text
Differently from the questions format, the content section contains content that teachers can add to the block which are more presentational while questions are more for students to submit. Below is a list of the different content formats that are available for teachers to use when creating their own activity.
Mousing over the Import Content From... button will also allow teachers to import content from different areas within the classroom such as pages, assignments, or assessments. Importing content from resource groups will allow the teacher to use content that has been made inside of the resource library in their newly created activity.
The Import Content From... button will copy every block from the target and either merge with or overwrite the content in the desired location. For assignments and assessments, teachers can choose between the instructions separately from the work/questions section.
