Annotations as Quiz?

(Media Center for Art History) #1

Hi All,

We've recently had a talented student create a model for use in one of our core classes: This is effectively replacing an old flash-based study guide with the equivalent of annotations for definitions. I think the annotations work great as they are, but I was wondering if there would be any interest by the dev team and in the community for creating a quiz out of annotations - i.e. clicking on an annotation prompts the viewer to name the architectural term or something of that nature. I could see this being useful for a variety of scenarios and education levels and wanted to put the idea out there.

you can do something like this using the viewer API.


Yeah, the Annotation Sync example could be useful for you:

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll certainly dig in and check it out. I meant the post more as an idea for someone who would not be able to set things up using the API themselves. If there was a GUI similar to the adding of annotations themselves it could be more accessible to users like educators and students without scripting experience.

Hi Myles,

Like your work and like your idea of a quiz/questionnaire feature. I like it so much that I have started working on the code. I downloaded your model and will put it on the website with a simple 'Click on the...' quiz. Clicking on the correct annotation will show a green tick. I will send you an update and the link in a few days.

Is this what you wanted for the architecture stuff?

Hi Jon,

Thanks very much for the links, that does look very close to what we have pictured as an option for the quiz. You have quite a lovely site there. I'll be sending it to others in my office to see what they think, but to me it looks great.
