The image will be uploaded as shown below.
Here, you can select the puzzle size, select the no. of pieces and give the time limit. The correct image will appear automatically after the learner fails to complete the puzzle within the given time.
You can see, in the screen shot below, that the jigsaw puzzle has been inserted onto the slide.
Preview the slide, and you can see the image is converted into a puzzle. You can also reset the puzzle, if you want to change the design.
You can also add hints and feedback to the puzzles. Once you have created a jigsaw puzzle, don’t resize or scale the interactivity. If you do so, the puzzle doesn’t work properly.
