What it does

The Cards lesson type presents content cards that are laid out in a grid. Each card can have text, photo, video, and/or audio content on both sides.

The Cards lesson type supports a variety of interactions. This lesson type can be used like digital flashcards, with questions on the front, and responses on the back.
