Interactive slides are used to engage the student regarding specific topics and concepts from the presentation. Inserting interactive slides will trigger learning moments with your students and increase overall participation during class.
Character Limitations: Activity slide Questions are limited to a maximum of 1000 characters. Student justifications currently have no character limit. Short answer responses are capped at 60k (60000) characters.
REMINDER: Interactive slides should be previewed within the presentation before publishing, to ensure they are in the correct format and do not require additional editing. In addition, you should check the auto-generated activity codes for SMS responses, to be sure they are unique for each activity slide.
SMS Response Instructions
All interactive activities, except Image quizzes, generate instructions for responding to the question via text message (SMS). These instructions include a phone number to text the answer to, and an "activity code" that identifies the class and the question. SMS responses are logged in the same way online responses are.
Only students assigned to the section can respond to these activities, and students must have their mobile number in their account profile, to allow the system to recognize the responder.
