So I created a lesson page and at the bottom of it added some cloze questions. In the preview of the page it displays exactly as I want and designed it, but when uploaded to moodle it is completely wrong. I cannot get it to display correctly no matter what I do with the code.
The page includes several small tables used for formatting (which I know is poor design practice, but without the use of stylesheets I don't have any other choice). So I used inline styles to get the page formatted correctly. I know that using html within the Moodle editor is limited, and also within the HotPot editor it appears to be even more limited.
I can do lesson pages with no questions on them, just information and examples, then a Next button that opens a quiz page, then another lesson page, then another quiz page, etc. But that is not the format I would prefer.
So my question - is it practical to use the HP for actual lesson page design? Wherein I would have lesson info and questions, mixed on a single page (lesson). Similar to what is seen in language learning books? That is my goal - make my language learning web site lessons interactive in the way that a printed book is - lesson info and questions of various types all incorporated together. Then after 4 lessons I would have a unit review test.
Does anyone else make use of mixing textual information and questions on the same page?
Thanks for your responses/input,
