What it does

Arrange is a lesson type that supports presentation and creation of timelines. Students arrange items, randomly placed at the top and bottom of the screen, in the correct order on a timeline.

The timeline and objects can be moved by dragging on the background, and items can be zoomed in and out by pinching.

A button in the top right corner can be toggled to display which items are correctly placed, via a small checkmark on the item.

Toggling the Hide/Reveal button in the corner menu can move items into their correct position and then back onto the screen.
