Creating checkbox problems in Open edX

Checkboxes are a good way of asking multiple choice questions with more than one correct answer. Here's how they're put together in Open edX.

You'll now be presented with a list of different problem types. Select Checkboxes

You should now see a template question which you can change by clicking Edit in the upper right. 

This is the Simple Problem Editor where you edit your problems using simple markup language. In order to change anything, all you have to do is type, but be mindful of how you format the problems, and try remain within those boundaries. The cheat sheet on the right hand side can be used to help with formatting.

When you finish editing your question, be sure to hit Save!

That's all there is to it!
