Simulating Real-World Activities with Drag-and-Drop Interactions #380

Drag-and-Drop Practice Activities #380: Challenge | Recap

Drag-and-drop interactions are a great way to allow learners to practice new tasks or processes—in a realistic way. While drag-and-drop interactions are often used as quizzes with common “Correct/Incorrect” feedback. 

But there’s so much more you can do with freeform drag-and-drops to encourage learners to practice new skills and interact with your content. Let’s take a look at a couple of examples.

Show Off Your Articulate 360 Projects at DevLearn DemoFest

If you’re planning to attend DevLearn, I hope you’ll consider sharing one of your E-Learning Challenge projects at DemoFest. DemoFest is an excellent way to showcase your project with the e-learning community. You’ll also get to see a wide variety of projects and talk to the designers and developers about how they built them. It’s like a year’s worth of E-Learning Challenge demos in one event.

You can learn more about the conference and DemoFest on the DevLearn website. I hope to see you there.
