Puzzle Interaction – Single-drop

This drag and drop puzzle interaction can be used as a novel way to introduce content to learners. This is the Single-drop version in which the puzzle pieces can only be dropped on a single drop target. The interaction was created using a series of ungraded Drag and Drop Question objects. Download the Photoshop template file to create puzzle pieces with your own images.

To use a Lectora Online Library Object (.wwo), select Library Objects > Insert a Library Object on the Tools ribbon. On the dialog box that opens, click the Import From File button and browse to the .wwo file you want to import. Once the file is located, click the Import button and the Library Object will expand in the Title Explorer of the current title automatically.

To use a Lectora Desktop Library Object (.awo), simply drag and drop the .awo file into the open Lectora application and it will expand in the Title Explorer of the current title automatically.

For more information about using, saving, reusing, and sharing Lectora Library Objects for both Lectora Desktop and Lectora Online, see this article from the Knowledge Base.

      Hi Sergey. The Preview button on all of the shared content pages seems to be on the fritz at the moment. We’re aware of the issue and are working on a fix. In the meantime, you can still right-click on the button and choose “open in new tab” to preview the content.

    When I add my own image, how do I export/save each piece to create the image files for Lectora?

      Hi Eric,

      To select just the puzzle piece shapes in the Photoshop file, CTRL-Click (or equivalent for Mac) the layer thumbnail in the Layers palette. That will create a selection that is just the shape of that piece. Then do Edit > Copy Merged to copy all the layers. Then File > New to create a new document. (As you probably already know, the new doc will default to the dimensions of what is currently stored in the clipboard.) Paste it in and do File > Save For Web.

      I hope this answers what you are asking. If not, let me know and I’ll try again! 😉

    Hi Wendy

    I am trying to download the Lectora File, but I keep getting these messages when I try to open the file:

    1. Data file is corrupted or saved by a different version of this product. Some data may be lost.

    followed by:

    2. Error – Cannot find file.

    Can you help me with this problem?

    Thanks

      Hi Deb,

      May I ask what browser you are using? We seem to be finding that some people are having issues downloading .awo and .wwo files directly in some browsers and would like to document under what conditions this happens.

      In the meantime, I have replaced the Lectora download files with .zip files. Please try downloading these and see if they work for you.

      I apologize for the inconvenience.

      Also, keep in mind that the files you are downloading are Lectora Library Objects (.awo for Lectora desktop and .wwo for Lectora Online). They are not .awt files which is the native file format for Lectora desktop. So rather than double-clicking a .awo file to open it, you would simply drag and drop it into your open Lectora application and it will expand in the Title Explorer automatically.

    Thank you. I am using Firefox.

    The problem was probably due my trying to double click the open instead of dragging it into an open Lectora application.

    Thanks again

      You’re welcome, Deb! I initially thought you were one of our ‘bad download’ victims, but I reread your post and realized it was actually opening the file you were having trouble with. Sorry for the confusion. Glad you can open the file now! 🙂
