Our ID and development team has been thinking about components which we'd find useful - some of which have already been discussed here or on the other thread (https://community.adaptlearning.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=154). Our ideas include (in no particular order):
1) Open input – including some level of keyword recognition so that feedback/model answer can vary depending on the matched text, and ideally with an ability to retain data. This is something lots of clients ask us for – they often don't feel there is value in open input questions without keyword recognition, but don't feel it necessary to score the learners (they won’t be penalised if the keywords aren’t entered, or for spelling errors).
2) Tabbed slide out - in its initial state rather like the accordion, but on selecting the tabs some text/img/media slides out to the right or left. This could resize into a simple accordion or pop-up.
3) Variants of click and reveal/pop-up interactions – while the hot graphic meets our basic needs, this is an interaction type that we think benefits from variety!
4) Timeline – timelines are a firm favourite with clients, particularly for inductions/change management/processes. While again the hot graphic could be repurposed, enabling sliding within a timeline component would be great.
5) Exploratory graphic/map tour – users can navigate around a larger graphic to find out more information
6) Data visualizer – a graph or chart could be generated from input data, potentially with selectable areas for further explanation
7) Flip card – could be used either as content presentation or as part of an assessment
8) Drag and drop – I know the issues with this include accessibility and how to present on different devices, but perhaps a matching/drop down alternative could presented so that the learner could choose to take it in a different way?
9) Likert-type questions - for self assessment, generating different feedback depending on the rating
Some of these will of course be easier than others to implement/will have a wider appeal, but over time and with the fantastic work that the community is already doing, I'm sure that we'll end up with empty wish-lists.
I'm looking forward to seeing what will make the initial cut!
