Using variables to capture a learner’s name is one of the most common ways to build more personalized and dynamic e-learning.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to show how text variables can be used to capture and display a learner’s name in e-learning courses.
For users experienced with using variables, we’re looking for creative ways to capture and display the learner’s name. Build a demo or show a real-world project you built.
If you’re brand new to e-learning or working with variables, don’t sweat this one. We’re here to help. If you get stuck or want us to take a look at your project, post a question in the forums and we’ll be happy to take a look.
Here are some resources for Storyline users. If you’re using another authoring tool or even a tool that doesn’t support variables (like PowerPoint) you can still share your ideas.
