Common E-Learning Interactions: Drag-and-Drop in E-Learning (2018) #202

Drag-and-Drop Interactions in E-Learning #201: ChallengeRecap

Drag-and-drop interactions are a fantastic way to compel learners to lean forward and interact with the course content. They’re one of the most versatile and engaging interactions because they can be used many different ways. Some common use cases include:

  • Process activities that require learners to drag and drop steps into their correct order
  • Navigation activities where users drag and drop objects to navigate from one slide to another

NYC Pet Adoption Tango: Drag/Drop: Download: I started working with these visuals during ELC #201 just to play with animations (thank you Nancy Woinoski for your hover effect ) and practice on being more consistent with my visual look through out a project. This story is based on something I saw in the NYC Union Square Farmers Market. I walked by a pet adoption area where people were choosing cats and dogs --and a violinist right next to them was playing tango music. I promise to find some non-pet material next time!
