Using Interactive Tables to Present Information in E-Learning #191

Using Interactive Tables in E-Learning #191: Challenge | Recap

Tables are a simple and effective way to present facts, figures, and other related information. Using simple rows and columns, tables can organize information in ways that make it easy for learners to comprehend.

One of the challenges with using tables in e-learning courses is letting learners see both the big picture concept and the finer details.

To help learners make sense of all that data, you’ll need to layer some interactive elements over your table. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an example that demonstrates how interactive tables can be used in e-learning. You can use Storyline’s built-in tables or you can create them from scratch. If you do use Storyline’s tables, please mention that you did when you post your example.


Last Week’s Challenge:

To help you set the table for this week’s challenge, take a few moments to check out the interactive coloring books your fellow community members shared over the past week:

How to Handle Disruptive Training Participants: For this challenge I developed an interactive table on how to handle disruptive training participants when you are facilitating a session in person. I was playing around with this topic using sliders, but the table worked out pretty well too. Personally I like tables for learning, but I find them hard to read on smaller devices. My table is on slide #3--I set this up as a mini-course. My table is simple and I used clicks and layers to reveal the information. I could use some help on my animated characters--I have some state changes and they seem to be hopping around a little bit in the hover and visited state. I would love some feed... Expand
