Split-View Components

Reduce cognitive load on students by keeping questions adjacent to relevant interactive content.

Split-View components allow you to keep some content on one side of a student's screen while they can freely scroll through other content on the other side. This is most commonly used with videos, simulations, and data table/graphs on the left side that students use to answer questions shown on the right side.

The example below shows a data table and graph that students need to refer to in order to answer several questions. This reduces cognitive load for students allowing them to focus their efforts strictly on the content instead of constantly having to scroll up-and-down throughout an activity.

Not everything needs to be split-view all the time, so Split-View Components allow you the flexibility to do what's best for students based on the circumstances. See the Spring Force Practice activity for an example of using both Split-View and inline view.

Creating a Split-View Section

When adding a new section or editing an existing one, click Add Split View

This creates a Split View Component. Click the Add Component Dropdown to select a component to add to the left (1) or right (2) component, then click the + button to add that component.
