Create Interactive Explanations for the 2020 Tour de France #297

Tour de France Interactive Examples #297: Challenge | Recap

Happy Friday, e-learning peloton! The 2020 Tour de France began last week, and I can’t think of a better sport to use for a challenge topic. On the surface, Le Tour might seem like a bike race. But there’s a lot to learn about the classifications, stages, jersey colors, tactics, and strategies, etc.

To help us learn more about this prestigious sport, here are a few challenge topics that might help get your creative ideas spinning:

  • Interactive maps - Show the official route and stage cities of the tour.
  • Timelines - Step through each of the 21-day stages. Or, create a historical overview of the race, beginning with the first one in 1903.
  • Tabs interactions - Use click-and-reveals to showcase the different riders, teams, and countries participating in the race.
  • Sliders and dials - Create compare-and-contrast activities to help learners visualize the cadence, speeds, and overall output the riders produce at different stages in the race.
  • Labeled graphics - Create interactive images to help learners identify parts of the bicycle or types of support riders in the peloton.
  • Drag-and-drops - Build sorting activities that let learners match jerseys with the correct classification.
  • Animations - Use looping animations, callouts, .gifs, and video to explain team tactics.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an e-learning example for this year’s Tour de France. You can focus on the sport’s history, rules, tactics and strategies, the different stages, route, cyclists, jersey colors and meanings, or whatever you find most interesting.

Do you know PEMDAS to solve equations? I created a quiz for practicing different levels of equations where the answers are the lengths of the different stages of the tour. I have been wanting to create a game board scenario and this seemed like the material to try it out on. I had a weird glitch that I can't seem to fix in my entrance animations for the multiple choice questions. No matter what I do, there are three slides that don't enter correctly. I am wondering what it is that I am missing or if there is a glitch in the Matrix?? As always, I would love to hear feedback. These challenges are really helping me build my knowledge and portfolio. I am learning so much from viewing all of your interactions as well. You guys are amazing and I want to hear helpful criticism! ht... Expand
