We’ve heard that adult learners prefer having freedom in their e-learning courses, but there are times when we need to make sure they complete an interaction before moving on to the next slide. So, what if they revisit a restricted slide? We don’t want them to needlessly have to go through the interaction again, right? This is where some quick work with a True/False variable and some trigger conditions can come in handy. So, read on as we unlock this “as heard in training” question: “How can I restrict navigation
Can I Reset a Variable?
We explore all the variables of variables during our hands-on Storyline 360 training, and in doing so, we so often stumble upon e-Learning interactions that would benefit from a variable reset. Join us today as we answer this “as heard in training” question: “Can I Reset a Variable?” In Storyline 360 e-Learning development, there are many motivations to reset a variable, otherwise known as “initializing.” (And luckily, initializing a variable is easier than you might think—often requiring just one additional trigger.) Not only can initializing variables become necessary when developing
What If I Need the Stops in My Slider to Be Uneven?
In the final portion of our hands-on Advanced Storyline 360 training, we end the session with some fun, easy, and favorite features of mine: sliders and dials! During this segment, we task the students with creating a fairly simple interaction that we use often: showing a timeline of events. In that exercise, the slider has eight stops, and the stops are equal distance apart. When teaching this, however, we’re often asked, “What if I need my slider to stop at points that aren’t equal distance apart?” While there are varying
Can I Make a Dial Look Like a Timer in My Course? (Part 1)
Dials are one of the more versatile interactions in Storyline, as you may have seen in Articulate’s Challenge #151: Using Interactive Dials and Knobs in e-Learning. But did you know that dials can also be used in other creative ways, even if the learner never directly interacts with them? In a recent custom virtual training session, a student asked if a dial could be used to look like a timer on her question slide. Not only can this be done, but it can be accomplished easier than you might think!
