Image Sequencing Tutorial

< All Topics

The Image Sequencing content type challenges the learner to order a randomized set of images according to a task description.

Example

Here’s the¬†Image Sequencing content¬†we’ll create in this tutorial:

When to use Image Sequencing

You can use this content type to create any sort of exercise where the learner has to place predefined items in the correct order (sequence).

Step 1: Topic

In this tutorial, we will create an exercise in which a learner has to order planets from smallest to largest.

Step 2: Creating an Image Sequencing

Select the New content option and chooseImage Sequencing from the list of Content types:

The Image Sequencing editor looks like this:

The editor consists of 3 parts: Task Description and Set of Images. By default, there are three images in the set but you can add as many as you like by pressing the “Add image”  button below the Image list.

Step 3: Task description

In the Task description field, we give the learner basic instructions or introduce the problem to be solved. We’ll use this text for the Task descriptionOrder the planets from smallest to largest

Step 4: Filling in the first card

Mercury is the largest planet so we will add it first. 

Download this image of Mercury. Click the “+ Add” button and upload the image you downloaded from Wikimedia.

Under Image Description type Mercury. Now you’ve added your first image. The editor should look like this:

Now we can proceed and add 7 more planets. Note that the order in which you are adding is important since this if what defines the correct sequence.

Step 5: Adding the rest of the cards

In the same way you filled in the first card, fill in the remaining seven. This is the information you need to fill in the remaining seven cards:

Step 6: Finishing up

Your editor should look like:
