Setting up the Multiple Choice Question within the Slide & Video Activity

To set up the multiple choice question within this slide activity, you may insert a minimum of two answer choices. Click on the green tick icon to select the correct answer.

When the student submits the answer, a green tab will appear for a correct answer, and a red tab to indicate that the answer provided is wrong. For the wrong answer, the correct answer will automatically be shown to the student. They can progress to the next activity without getting the answer correct.  

If you need to have multiple questions on the same Slide Activity, we recommend you to use the MCQ Slide App instead. You can add as many MCQ Slide Apps as you need on the question area or in the slide area, unlike this single question entry format.

Using the Slide Apps within the Slide & Video Activity

Click on the ' Add Slide Apps' red icon on the top right side of your slide. To select, click on the icon that you are interested and it will be added to your Slide or Video. More details of the various Slide Apps here.

Slide Apps can be placed at three different location on the Slides: side of the Slide, i.e. Active Slide Apps Panel, inside the text area or directly on the video/slide image.

You could change the number of Slide Apps that is required to be completed by the students as well.

Note that Slides Apps that are already in the Active Slide Apps Panel is already active on your lesson. Please configure any Slide Apps that are in this panel.

Split Slides

In your Slide & Video Activity, you can split the slides such that the slides from the point you cut will move automatically into a new Slide & Video Activity. This will be useful to break up multiple pdfs, ppts or many slides that you uploaded into smaller and manageable activities that your student can better appreciate. Reposition the new Activity and link as part of your Learning Path.

Collaborative Feature between you and your students

In your Slide Activity, you can embed a collaborative Google Doc with the 'Embed Site / Interactive Video' option to allow you and your students to work on a document together.
Make sure the Google Doc setting is set to shared to all with link, as editor. Embed this link to your Deck.Toys slide and it is ready to use!
To avoid the question being tampered by your students, type the question into the Text area of the Slide instead of the Google Doc.
