The Hint provides a short introductory information about a feature of the user interface.
There is a subtle animation when the hint appears, to draw learner’s attention to the information it’s communicating.
Its main element is the message container for the explanatory text. The module has:
- explanatory information
- a button to dismiss or acknowledge the information
- a stem and a pointer to connect it with the related interface element
The position and length of the stem can be modified.
The tooltip variant is used when the hint is always available. For example it is used in cloze quizzes to provide a hint about a possible answer.
