- Click the 'Save changes' button.
Can I use images or other file types as choice options instead of text?
To do this, first upload your images or sound files (mp3) or video files to your course:
- Go to your course files and get the URL (web address) of the files you want to display. (You can usually do this by right-clicking and selecting Properties or copy link location)
- Paste it into a text editor like notepad (This is not essential but makes it easier to add the code)
- To display an image, add this code either side of your image URL:
<img src="YOUR_IMAGE_.jpg" />
- To display a sound or video file -first ensure your site admin has multimedia plugins/filters enabled
- Add this code either side of your sound or video file:
- Set up your choice as normal and in the options boxes, paste the relevant code+URL.
Beware! Double check before you paste - any extra or missing space or bit of code and it won't work.
