"Hot spot" Type Question

"Hot spot" Type Question

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

As a vocational teacher currently using Blackboard, and happily moving to Canvas, I would really like to see a "Hot Spot" question on a test. Blackboard uses this. It gives the students a picture, and the students must click on the correct area. For example, I teach Information Technology and the students need to know the components of a motherboard. I can post a picture of the motherboard, and then drag a box around the correct answer area...say the CPU socket. Then, the student must click on that area. Obviously, the nomenclature of the question type could not be hot spot, but I think this would be invaluable to Canvas!

Thank you for your Feature Idea submission.  We wanted to call your attention to " modifiedtitle="true" title="Hot spot question type​ and ​, both of which were submitted in a different voting period and archived due to not meeting a threshold of votes and/or comments. It may contain valuable discussion and insight as this discussion moves through the voting process.

In the meantime, we do not discourage re-submission of a previously archived idea because community priorities change over time.

We also encourage you to check out this article that can help you maximize the exposure and support of your Feature Idea: How do I write a good feature idea submission?​ First steps, I suggest you reach out to ssimpso4​ and amarchan@su.edu​ (originators of the other ideas) to help you build momentum around this idea.

I like this idea. It'd be really good for beginning Spanish classes when we do body parts, furniture, etc. Thank you!

Our health career programs would also love this, among many more programs I am less familiar with.

Our college district is considering migrating from D2L to Canvas. D2L offers hot spot questions as part of their Game-Based Learning tool. Our nursing department needs the option to create hot spot questions in their exams, because the state board uses hot spot questions in their nursing exams.

This is a great feature that I would love to see in Canvas.  We are also switching over from Blackboard to Canvas.  This is one of the primary things I would love to see in Canvas.

This would also be awesome for music teachers to have students label specific parts of a musical score or identify features of their own part in an ensemble score.

Great idea! We're looking into pulling some of our content out into a CMS and that was one of the selling points (different question types) but it would be awesome to do it from Canvas!

While this feature idea did not reach the necessary threshold for moving to the next stage, demand for hot spot questions appears to be strengthening (up to 70 votes from the previous 37).  In Canvas Studio, in the comments on Modern Quizzing Engine​, amarchan@su.edu​ suggest hot spot questions as a desired feature on Nov 12th, so I know that our Product team are aware of this desire.  Gideon.Williams@britishschool.nl​, christopher.barrett@sydney.edu.au and clong@hbuhsd.edu​ also suggested this question type.

Thank You for taking the time and energy to submit and discuss your idea. Your feedback helps our product teams prioritize feature development so we can build a product you will love. Unfortunately, this idea has been archived because it did not meet the 100-vote threshold within the 3-month voting period. Learn more at: How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

Can archived ideas still become a feature?  Potentially. Archived ideas can be resubmitted by Community members. As people’s needs change, previously submitted ideas may gain additional traction. All feature ideas are evaluated as a whole and may influence product direction.
