Tokyo - Components | educaPlay


"EducaPlay" component allows adding games and activities created with the EducaPlay tool., Depending on the type of subscription chosen by users, this tool allows downloading and using activities shared inside the community in other platforms like learningMaker.
This component is added within the screens by default (See here), but it can also be added inside other components (for example, inside a Pop-up, a Row, etc.).
You will find this component in the group of "Activity" components.

Remember It is important to remember that this is an external element, so we have limited control over it. That means:

  • We can check whether students have completed an activity. This will allow us to turn EducaPlay components into goals that must be achieved and/or elements that limit progress with progressive navigation.
  • We do not keep any data regarding this interaction (i.e. we do not save answers provided by students, for instance).
  • This component does not count towards total score or unit progress. We do not know the answers and we will not record right/wrong results, so this score will not be included when calculating the average score.
    For that reason, we recommend using this component for animations and additional games. We recommend using the "Reinforcement activity" component (See here) or "Quiz" component (See here) to add specific activities and control them better.

The component occupies 100% of the space by default, but size can be reduced to other preset percentages or can be displayed in "full-size". Some quote styles may overlap the central column if "Full" width is chosen.

This property allows placing the component on the right, on the left or on the centre of the central column where contents are shown. It can only be used when applied "Width" is less than 100%.
