Dynamic Sizing and Responsiveness for Learnosity Questions

Generally speaking, Learnosity Questions adapt to their containers or to the screen size they are viewed from. However there are some constraints, as outlined below.

Each Question/response/Feature will respond to the size of its container.

The tables below show the optimal minimum widths for each Question type. Should it be less than the minimum, the UI will perform the best that it can. The Questions will scale to fit any large container width, with the exception of image cloze Question types, which only scale to the original width of the set image.

Note: ** By default, Audio Player feature type has fixed width and height. By enabling the Responsive flag, the Audio Player's width and height can be changed based on the size of its container.

Items using multi-column layouts will also respond to the size of its container, stacking content vertically when the space available is below a certain minimum width. If the width available for any column is less than 250px, content will be stacked. If all columns have 250px available, content will continue to render side-by-side in multi-column layout. 

Note: responsive column layout is only supported in assess mode, not for the embedded inline mode.

The API has been tested on mobile devices. Taking advantage of CSS3 media queries, Questions and Features adapt to different screen sizes.
