  5. Please note when creating a learning package:
    • For now, claims must be independent of each other, i.e. any claim must be understandable without seeing any other claim. This is because the order of claims is randomized in the game on repeat attempts. 
    • Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
    • Most input elements show a tooltip, that explains what that element does, if a mouse pointer is hovered over them.
    • In the game claims are grouped by level. All claims in a level must be evaluated correctly in order to proceed to the next level. Use the levels to group the claims in a way that you think will support the players’ learning process.
