Fill in the blanks Exercise

This is a self-training exercise for your users to consolidate their learning. Through a multiple choice gap fill exercise, users can test their knowledge and select the correct answer. Once they have completed the exercise, users can do it as many times as they like. 


Depending on the size of the cell this interactive element occupies, it can behave in two ways:

  • Direct execution: When you click on the icon on the home page, the exercise starts in that same cell.

  • Launcher: If the cell containing the exercise is too small to do the exercise comfortably, this will act as a launcher. This means that after clicking the icon on the home page, the exercise will expand until it fills the whole slide. The user will be able to return the exercise to its original size by clicking on the X which appears after expanding.

In responsive mode (mobile), it always behaves in launcher mode to provide a more comfortable and immersive experience, regardless of how it behaves in its non-responsive version.

Once the exercise is done, a general feedback window will be displayed showing the number of correct answers achieved in the first attempt .


The usual customization options are available to you:

  • Color: Select one of the colors from the palette and set the opacity. In addition, you can choose any other color using the customized color configurator.
  • Gradient: Choose one of the gradients on the palette and set the opacity and the angle. In addition, you can choose any other gradient using the customized gradient configurator.
  • Image: If you decide to use an image as a background, you will have the same configuration options as you see in the image element. See the related article for further information. 


You can add text as a title or an introductory text that will appear on the home page of the exercise.


Adding the text and the words that the student will have to complete is very easy, simply write the text directly in the text box that appears in the side editor, and using opening and closing brackets [ ] specify those words that you want the user to complete. These words will appear randomly in the exercise’s drop-down menu.

If you choose the Combo response mode, those words will appear randomly in the exercise 's drop-down menu. If you choose the Text response mode, the user won’t see any option.

If the user gets the right answer the first time they select it, it will count as a success and the answer will blink be highlighted in green. In contrast, if the user gets it wrong, it will shake be highlighted in red and they will have the possibility of continuing to try other answers until they get the right one.

Accompanying image

You can add an accompanying image to help in resolving the exercise. It will appear next to the text so that it can be consulted while the exercise is being done.
