How to create a hotspot in Easygenerator

At easygenerator we add features and improvements every week. This week I want to draw your attention to a cool new feature: The HotSpot

What is a hotspot?

A hotspot is basically a hyperlink on an image. A hotspot can link to a text with explanation, another image, a web page or a document. In our first implementation we only have a text option.

Why should I want to use a hotspot?

With the text hotspot that we implemented you can add text or explanations to an image. The advantage is that the user will only see the image, and will get the extra info in the context (if he or she hovers over the hotspot with the mouse).

How do I add a hotspot in easygenerator?

I will show you in a few simple steps. I also recorded a video showing the process in which I added some nice easygenerator tips as a bonus!

You can add hotspots to all content and question items in easygenerator. If you want to add content in a topic or question just click button:
