Using True/False Variables in E-Learning #271

True/False Variables in E-Learning #271: Challenge | Recap

Why Should E-Learning Designers Learn to Use Variables?

Articulate Storyline's core authoring features (states, layers, and triggers) are the building blocks that make it easy for virtually anyone to create interactive e-learning.

But when you want to create more dynamic and personalized learning experiences, you’ll need to know how to use variables.

Using Storyline’s variables, you can present dynamic content based on your learner’s activity and other defined conditions. Variables can store learner input or quiz results and use the information to present dynamic content based on specific criteria.

And in this week's challenge, we're looking at the true/false variable.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an example that demonstrates how true/false variables can be used in e-learning.

Variables can be tricky if you've never used them. If you have a concept or idea you're trying to show but get stuck or have questions, let us know in the forums and we'll help you out.

Hi everyone! First time I'm sharing anything in here, so be gentle. In this course, I'm using true/false variables for two things. 1 - To control whether audio and animations start automatically or not. I work for a company with a heavy focus on accesibility, and I found that providing this option is good for people who use screen readers. If you uncheck the text-box on the 1st page, all content is visible from the beginning and is not animated, and the timeline is paused. 2. To let the user get a better grasp of how HTML, CSS and JavaScript affects content on a webpage. I COULD just explain this, but i always try to put in an explorative approach whenever possible. Here users can turn HTML, CSS and JavaScript on or off and watch how it affects their website. They can also "edit... Expand
