Greetings all I created a demo of a drag and drop to reveal a picute. It really was pretty simple I took a picture  of Ben Franklin, and made 4 copies each with a little less detail then the one before till it was basically a plain black shape, and stacked them one on top of each other on a different layer. Then I created 6 choices 4 correct ones and assigned 10 points for each one. Then I used a variable called score to track the correct answers. For each correct answer a new picture was revealed till they reached 40 points and the "clearest" picture.

 

 I posted the tutorial up on youtube here and here is access to the story file. I hope others can find this usefull.

What a creative demo, Tyus. I can see a lot of applications for this type of activity.

 

Thanks for sharing the tutorial and source files!

Hey Tyus,

 

That's very nice and I agree with David that it could be applied in so many ways. Tx for sharing both the tutorial and the story.

oops. I just went to download the story and got a lot of gibberish on my screen. I can recreate on my own, but thought I'd let you know.

Thanks Tyus. Great idea! Opens a whole new door for the drag and drop.

 

Cheers,

Nick

Is anyone else having a problem with the downloaded file like Rebecca Fleisch reported? I can't seem to recreate the problem and I want to fix it.

Thx

Everything appears correctly for me, Tyus.

 

@Becky: Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?


Posted Thursday, January 03, 2013 at 11:47 AM  

I know. I should just be able to interpret it, right? I had retried this morning just before posting and re-tried again now. Same deal.

 

As I said, I don't need it, I was able to reproduce from the tutorial Tyus had made. But in case others were having the same issue, thought I'd mention it.

@Rebecca do you have Articulate Storyline  and what version? The gibberish you are showing looks like when you download a zip file and open it without unzipping.

Hi Tyus,

 

Yes, I have SL. I have the latest update. I'm simply clicking on the link you've provided. It worked fined for David. So, I'm not sure what's going on for me.

 

As I mentioned, I'm not worried about it - your tutorial was great and I was able to recreate just fine. I only mentioned it in case someone else was having the same problem, but no one has indicated that they are.

 

Tx again for sharing. Great idea.
