Memory Game Makeovers #121

Memory and Matching Games #121: Challenge | Recap

How Can Course Designers Boost Their E-Learning Brain Power?

Looking to improve your working knowledge of variables and advanced triggers? Then you need to practice using those skills!

There are lots of ways you can practice. One way to practice is to develop a strong understanding of the basics. Another way is to deconstruct advanced projects built by other users. And that’s what this week’s memory makeover challenge is all about!

Examples of Memory and Matching Games

Here are three matching games to help you get started with this week’s challenge. You’re welcome to use one of the existing games or build everything on your own.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to makeover one of the memory game templates in our downloads section.  Since the files are already built, your primary goal is to come up with a creative design concept or theme for your entry.

I took one of the templates shared above and modified it to present an interaction on contractions for ESL learners. My interaction is here: My blog post is here: I've added a cover screen, modified the matching game with a chalkboard look and feel, and also have added a follow-up matching question where the learner completes the sentences. Unfortunately the free chalkboard font that I found writes the letter N backwards which isn't great for ESL learners. I've also customized the feedback layers. I'm very interested in improving my graphic design skills so any suggestions related to that would be very much appreciated. The only other thing that ... Expand
