415 BYOD: Get Fancy with Variables: Designing Custom Multiple Choice Questions
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, October 24
St Thomas AB
When you develop an eLearning course for a client or yourself, you want to make sure your work stands out. One way to achieve this is by creating a personalized Storyline template, which can include all sorts of custom interactions. Did you know you can even create custom multiple choice questions? By adding different effects to your question and having custom feedback layers, you are able to tailor the interaction to meet your template’s needs. It sounds complicated, but as you'll learn, it doesn't have to be.
After this session, you will walk away with all the tools to create multiple choice questions with feedback layers that are tailored to fit all your (or your client's!) needs. You'll learn how to create custom multiple choice questions using shapes, states, variables, and other custom effects. You'll walk away with a fully-programmed and completely customizable multiple choice interaction that you can reuse in any other learning objects. And you'll be able to apply the theories you learn in this session to any other interaction type, allowing you to create a Storyline template that is as unique and creative as you are!
In this session, you will learn:
- How to use various shapes to design a custom multiple choice question
- Various ways to use states to manipulate buttons and shapes to add visual interest
- How to use variables to control the functionality of the question
- Tips and tricks for how to make the process efficient and repeatable
