205 Take eLearning to the Next Level with JavaScript

1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, September 30



Authoring tools natively lack sophistication of handling variables. Rapid authorware developers feel limited, and many fear tackling more advanced functionality such as JavaScript.

In this session will you will learn some basic yet very cool examples of JavaScript-enhanced rapid development possibilities. You will also learn how to break down the core components by integrating JavaScript within common rapid authoring tools. You will learn an effective planning process by walking through a dice game (Yahtzee-esque) built in Articulate Storyline. The session provides encouragement for individuals with little to no JavaScript experience to use their existing skill sets to begin leveraging JavaScript.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How JavaScript can enhance development
  • The core components integrating JavaScript into common rapid authoring tools
  • A planning process to assist in building solutions
  • What to do when things go wrong

Novice designers and developers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Articulate Storyline, Sublime 2 text editor, Lectora JavaScript, search engines, and online communities.
