The Drawtivity site is a web based authoring system for creating e-learning activities that involve the user/student drawing on an image. These activities then provide feedback on what the correct answer is and optionally a percentage score based on the accuracy of the users drawn response. The functionality provided by these activities is designed to be generic and suitable for many applications (e.g. drawing graphs, identifying anatomy, tracing routes on maps etc).
The Drawtivity site is also designed to support the development, reuse and adaptation of Open Educational Resources (OERs). Each activity created on the system is an OER (licensed with the Creative Commons attribution 3.0 Unported Licence) and each activity has a related publicly viewable page which offers details and notes on the activity and links to allow a copy of the activity files to be downloaded so the activity can be used by anyone who wishes to. If you register an account on this system you will also be able to make a copy of any activity into that authoring account where you can make amendments to adapt that activity for your own educational needs.
On an activity's public page there are three links available to download different versions of the activity files. Clicking on any of these links will open a browser window with options of what to do with the published ZIP file. You should select to save this ZIP file on to your laptop or PC.
To test a downloaded activity you will need to extract the downloaded zip file and then open the activity index.html file. Below is advice on selecting and using the appropriate activity download version:
When you have an account on the Drawtivity site and are logged in to that account, the activity's public page will display a link Copy this activity to adapt and republish.

You can then edit the settings, text, image and feedback to suit your own applications for this activity before publishing it for your own use.
