Source list

Description

Source list is closely related to Text and Multigap modules. It enables to insert a ready-made list of text items to be put into a draggable gap activity. The elements can also be filled in with mathematical or chemical formulas thanks to the LaTeX scripting language.

Each item in the source list can match more than one draggable gap and the already selected elements can either be removed from a source list, or can remain in the module.

Depending on the activity type, it is possible to place the items either vertically or horizontally.

Of course it is possible to alter the look of the individual items included in the source list. All elements can be the same or different size, depending on the CSS style used.
