I make some multimedia educational exercises in Flash (for kids and teens) with many animations that involve lots of drag and drop functionality, multiple answers (with radio and check boxes), filling in the blanks, etc, and checking for correct answers (and sometimes pointing out at the wrong ones) among other things.
I was wondering if it is possible to make the same kind of educational materials with HTML5, JS and CSS.
Sure, most of that can be handled with jQuery and HTML quite easily, check boxes / fill in the blanks / point to the correct answer are all pretty basic.
Drag and drop, depending on what you're trying to do with it, can get trickier, but there are libraries out there that will get you backwards compatibility with most major browsers.
FWIW, none of the things mentioned require any HTML 5 features, although if you're good with SVGs you can do some pretty solid Flash replacements with that and something like this: http://raphaeljs.com/
