Creating Exploration Activities with Interactive Markers in E-Learning #464

Using Labeled Graphics in E-Learning #464: Challenge | Recap

Labeled graphics are one of the most popular explore-type interactions in e-learning. And creating them in Rise 360 or Storyline 360 is a breeze—just drop some markers on an image, add your content to the labels, and voilà! You've got an engaging interaction in minutes.

But here's the best part: labeled graphics aren't just quick and easy to build; they're also incredibly flexible. They're perfect for getting learners to drill down into timelines, maps, floorplans, diagrams, org charts, screenshots—you name it.

🏆 Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an example of a labeled graphics interaction. You can use Rise 360, Storyline 360, or any tool you like. Just show us how you’re using interactive markers to create explore-type activities.

In case you missed it, this week’s Storyline 360 update included the option to easily adjust interactive marker sizes to optimize accessibility for any screen.
