Students can pause and manage animation speed. While paused, students can write on their screen to show their work.
When an animation is playing, students can double-click on the screen to access the scrub bar to pause and review the animation. If students double-click as JiJi crosses the screen, they can click and drag the ball on the scrub bar to move through the puzzle and all animation.
Students can also turn on "Auto-Pause," which automatically shows the scrub bar to control feedback animation play. To do this, the student should click their name, go to "Settings" and toggle "Auto Pause" on. When this is enabled, animations don’t play automatically when a student makes a selection. Instead, it waits until the student clicks on the play button in the animation controls.
Students cannot skip the animation. They must watch it all the way through to get feedback on their answer.
During feedback animation, students in grades 3+ can click on the fast-forward icon to play the animation at 2x the speed. Once selected, the animation will play at 2x speed for that level until completed. The icon is not available for the first puzzle of a level, and if students get an answer incorrect, the button will automatically turn off after the animation.
