Because I’m a sucker for a challenge (or a glutton for punishment, take your pick), I sometimes play along with the e-learning design challenges over on the Storyline forums, just for my own experience building (using the Lectora software).
This week the challenge is to create a course without using “next” buttons, where other interactions advance the course (for example: a slider bar, drag and drops, or mouse overs). I know how to do a mouse over to advance the page, but is there a way in Lectora, without using programming languages, to make a drag and drop advance the page once it’s correct, or some other way to advance the page without using a “next” button that I haven’t thought of?
I know Storyline has different features and functionality than Lectora, so I’m not looking to exactly duplicate those interactions, but I’m just wondering if you guys had any ideas for how to tackle this particular challenge. I’m sure you guys can build all kinds of fancy things in programming language, but my programming experience is extremely limited, so I’m looking for things I can do without those skills.
My colleagues use storyline and I went along to one of the training days for the software.
One of the features that I enjoyed the most was their built in slider control. In the training, we used two sliders on the one page. One slider was used to control the second slider, which was a very long landscape picture. As you moved the first slider, the variable would control the movement of slider two (the image), and controlled your movement through the module.
However, I wish there was a built in functionality within Lectora to do this, like there is with Storyline.
Further, even though I was able to complete Sergey’s slider, I was unable to figure out how to work in a second slider like the above example.
