Using Drag-and-Drop Interactions in E-Learning #321

Using Drag-and-Drop in E-Learning #321:  Challenge | Recap

Drag-and-drop interactions are a fantastic way to compel learners to lean forward and interact with the course content. They’re one of the most versatile and engaging interactions because they can be used many different ways. Some common use cases include: 

  • Sorting activities where users drag and drop facts into different categories
  • Practicing real-world skills by placing objects into certain positions
  • Process activities that require learners to drag and drop steps into their correct order
  • Navigation activities where users drag and drop objects to navigate from one slide to another

Challenge of the Week 

This week, your challenge is to build and share a fresh drag-and-drop e-learning interaction. Drag and drops are always some of the most popular examples and downloads. Feel free to include your source file if you’re able to share.

This isn't exactly a new take on DnD learning. It's more of a new take on the nuts and bolts of putting together the technical part of whatever learning activity you have in mind. It started off with a request to drag text labels and display them on the next slide. Once that problem was solved, I realized the principle could be applied to what seems to me to be the most often requested feature of DnD - The ability to have more than one correct target. So here is a sample, with all these options: 1. Any number of targets can be correct for any object. 2. Objects not dropped on target are returned. 3. Targets can be cleared of dropped objects. 4. Multiple objects can be dropped on a single target. 5. On Try Again, it can clear or maintain the previous attempt. 6. Provides feedback t... Expand
