As of Moodle 3.0, this question type is part of the standard Moodle release. That is why there is no plugin from Moodle 3.x. You don't need one!

There are working examples in eAssessment with Moodle on our OpenLearn site.

The documentation is in How to create questions in Moodle on that site.

    Problem is only with loading jpg image for this type of question (drag and drop onto image)
    In any other case it works normal

    Well, you could try upgrading to a more recent version of Moodle.

    You could also try renaming the file, so that you don't get %20 and other escaped characters in the URL. Some fire-walls block those for no good reason.

    Is there anyway to set this question type up, so that the dropzones aren't actually visible? I am wanting to create a question type where I give the students a string of mathematical numbers and expressions, and the students have to drag left and right brackets into this expression so as to make it work correctly. At the moment with the dropzones being visible it makes it very easy to 'guess' correct locations - I tried adding lots of dropzones and they have to drag 'blanks' into the others, but this isn't very user friendly. I know I could use the drag and drop markers question type, but with this the marker is very small.

    I am expecting the answer to this question to be no, but asking just in case it is a yes.

    As of Moodle 3.0, this is part of the standard Moodle release. It is no longer an extra plugin. So, yes, it works!

    Dear Tim,

    I've just installed this Drag and Drop onto image to my Moodle 2.6, now there is a msg stating a missing file and my site became a mess. I already tried to delete the plugin though the C-Panel but there is no file with such a name. my site (teacher-jaque.com) is frozen and there nothing I can do. Could you help me, please?

    This is a great question type. Maybe it could look even better:

    As suggested by Joseph Rézeau in https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=358512,:

    ".. using the customized CSS rules, as per my previous post. No visible overlapping, no annoying boxes, the result is exactly the same as the original legend.

    It's a pity that one has to resort to such additional CSS rules, which can only be added by a Moodle site Admin, and of course will not suit all types of D & D questions. I suggest that optional settings be made available within the editing interface of such questions, to make them more flexible."

    How difficult would it be to have the border for the draggable items be selectable (border/no border) ?

    Would this be worth adding a Moodle Tracker issue?

    Hello, I just tried installing the zip file onto my Moodle 2.6+ site and now my site is locked on the Plugins Check screen telling me I require qtype_gapselect (2014111200) I don't seem to be getting any help from the forum so I was hoping someone here might be able to help.

    The message means exactly what it says: if you want to install this plugin, you need to install qtype_gapselect first, or at the same time.

    This question type is now part of standard Moodle. If you are running a supported version of Moodle, you should already have it.

    Hi

    Is there a way to use drag and drop plugins such that if we have following requirement it gets done with correct marking.

    We have a background image where we want the student to drop images beginning with letter m. In the draggables we are providing a mix of m letter objects and others. Now imagine if there are 3 drop locations on the background image and we have 3 m letter objects. Consider drop placeholders as D1, D2 and D3 and correct images are m1, m2, m3. The user should be able to drop either m1 or m2 or m3 on D1 or D2 or D3 and the answer should be correct. But the correct plugin binds every selected draggable to specific placeholder we see on the background image. How can we achieve this? Can this happen via some customization in the plugin at the code level? Please help.

    We are using Moodle version 3.4.1+
