20+ Really Creative Ways to Capture and Display Learner Names with Text Variables

Use Learner's Name in E-Learning Course #222: Challenge | Recap

Have you ever wanted to personalize your courses by addressing your learners by their name?

Using learners' names in courses is a relatively simple task: Insert the data entry field and use a variable reference to display the value of the field. Even though the process is simple, this is one of the best ways to creatively design and personalize e-learning course.

Thanks to everyone who shared examples, downloads, comments, and feedback this week. This was one of our most active and educational challenges.

Special thanks to first-time challengers Megan McPeak and Scott Schmeer! Thanks for joining the challenges and sharing your work!
