    This plugin and drag and drop markers have a bug in moodle 2.8.1 - the background image does not load on the test page

    Which theme are you using? Both these question type works find for me in Moodle 2.8.1, using the default 'Clean' theme.

    We experienced the same issue so made recommendations for iPad as this was the only tablet that we could get Moodle drag and drop to work with.

    It may be a bit late now but have you checked out the Safari Browser for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appdream.cloud ? From memory we were able to have some success with this browser on Android.

    Best of luck.

    Making this work on Android is on our todo list. Indeed, we have had one go already, and it is better than it was, but still not good enough. Hopefully we will get time to try again soon.

    Regarding my report - I have moodle 2.8.1 stable and tested this drag and drop with Clean, More and Elegance themes, all with same result - the background image does not appear on the page. Zones and draggable items do appear but zones not in the question area.

    OK, I reinstalled the plugin and now everything works! I don't know if any changes were made but now it's OK.

    Is there a way, when reviewing attempts at a drag and drop question, for the review tool to highlight which answers the user got correct for that question type?

    No there isn't and you might well ask 'why not?' And the answer comes down to trying to ensure that the feedback is accessible to all users. So we require our authors to write a full solution in the General feedback box. This might include an annotated diagram but if it does that diagram must also have alt-text associated with it - and clearly you can't put that alt-text on the diagram that is used in posing the question.

    Any thoughts on how to make non-unique choices so that zone 1 could be either of two (or more) responses?

    We created these drag and drop questions circa 5 years ago and I was expecting our academics to come back and say "that's great" but could we have a way of indicating that zones 1 & 2 could be filled with options A and B and it doesn't matter which way round they're filled. But such requests have been absent. Ok maybe one or two colleagues have raised the possibility, but not sufficient to warrant our investment in developing these question types further. A pity.

    Oh well. I hadn't had a need until just today and then two different situations presented almost simultaneously. Looks like I'll a Plan B. Thanks all the same.

    OK, I'm a new Moodle user and a real lunkhead. I just downloaded the code, but I don't know how to install it in Moodle. Is there a site or a resource that would guide me through it? Thanks so much!

    These instructions http://www.open.edu/openlearnworks/mod/oucontent/view.php?id=52702&section=2.1 are for a PC but should give you the idea. Search https://moodle.org/plugins/ for Mac specific info.
