Stay sharp and maintain your mental age by playing games that were designed to give your brain a workout!
Brain games and puzzles can be a fun way to exercise our minds. Not only do they help keep us mentally fit, they’re also great way to exercise our e-learning skills!
I like building these types of puzzles because they usually require more advanced course-building skills and concepts. Techniques like conditional triggers and variables are essential to track learner’s choices, give dynamic feedback, and personalize the overall experience.
Whether you’re frequently misplacing your car keys or just want to give your e-learning skills a workout, this week’s challenge is guaranteed to get you thinking! But first, let’s take a look at some recent examples shared in earlier challenges.

Optical Illusion Game
This interactive puzzle concept came from one of my kid’s pre-school workbooks. The goal was to help children identify shapes based on incomplete lines and circles. Turns out it also makes fun drag-and-drop interaction.
