Multiple Choice Quiz with Glowing Box Tutorial

We’re going from “Glowing Text” ideas below, with HTML5 Mark Tag with Glowing Text Tutorial, to “Glowing Box” ideas, starting today, that we apply in the context of a Multiple Choice Quiz.

As far as online quizzes go, don’t know if you agree, but we think our best chance to remember our learning is, particularly regarding incorrect (quiz) answers, to either …

  • trap the user with a correct answer with a Javascript popup (eg. alert) window, awaiting the press of a button … and/or …
  • really “in your face” highlighting of the correct answer (particularly in the case of a multiple choice scenario) with attention grabbing (CSS) styling

… and so, for the latter, we queue the new “Glowing Box” (CSS) styling, which (to us) is the same as the (brilliant CSS W3schools glowing text idea) “Glowing Text” styling except where you had “text-shadow” in the keyframes section (for “Glowing Text”) we use “box-shadow” in that same keyframes section (for “Glowing Box”). We add this onto our previous efforts with HTML/Javascript Multiple Choice Quiz Reveal Tutorial.

With the changed multiple_choice_quiz.html live run link, you can try out the new CSS “Glowing Box”, as per


<style>

/* Thanks to https://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_css_glowing_text */

.glow {
font-size: 16px;
color: #fff;
text-align: center;
-webkit-animation: glow 1s ease-in-out infinite alternate;
-moz-animation: glow 1s ease-in-out infinite alternate;
animation: glow 1s ease-in-out infinite alternate;
color: black;
}

@-webkit-keyframes glow {
from {
box-shadow: 0 0 3px #fff, 0 0 5px #fff, 0 0 37px #e60073, 0 0 9px #e60073, 0 0 11px #e60073, 0 0 13px #e60073, 0 0 15px #e60073;

}
}
</style>

… overlaying correct Multiple Choice (set) answers with a very compelling (div “box” 3D looking) display.
