Online Interactives Editor

As part of our Flash to HTML transition we have made an online editor for making HTML-based ranking tasks:

Launch the Interactives Editor in a New Window

March 5, 2020: the editor now supports labeled image ranking tasks.

March 12, 2021: the editor now publishes entire quizzes and individual ranking tasks.

April 16, 2021: the editor now allows background pages to be individually named.

October 31, 2022: the editor now allows the creation of both ranking tasks and sorting tasks.

The demonstration video below shows how to use the editor to create ranking tasks. (The video does not show the creation of labeled image ranking tasks nor sorting tasks at this time.)

The editor was developed with the aid of funding from the NASA Nebraska Space Grant. Many ranking tasks were adapted from existing tasks by undergraduate student Brandon Harper under a UNL UCARE award. The Luminsosity & the HR Diagram and Transit ranking task sets were created by graduate student Emily Welch in partial completion of her MS thesis requirements.
