Adding a learner's name

Dec 10, 2013

Hi. I think I have seen this answer before, but I cannot find it now. How can I enable the user to type her/his name so that the name can be used throughout the course? For example, I want my characters to be able to say things to the actual learner like "What do you think, Jason?"

Thanks so much for your help! Melissa

Hi Melissa,

To begin with, you will need to add a text data entry input field, where the user will input their name; click on the Insert tab at the top of the screen, click on Data Entry and select Text from the dropdown. You can now 'draw' your text entry field on the screen.

Text and Numeric entry fields automatically create a variable so to 'call' the user's entry from the previous screen and use it elsewhere in your course, you can add a reference to this variable.

I attach a VERY rough example which will hopefully explain the above.
