Hi, Katelin -- In addition to the great resources that have already been shared, I wanted to stop in to pass along the following, as well:

Hope that helps and you would also be welcome to reach out over in our design-related Building Better Courses forum for additional ideas, as well. :)

Cathy James - I LOVE how you used the animation completion to adjust your timer variable!!!  This made it easy for me to turn it into an "inactivity" timer by adding a trigger to reset the timer whenever the user interacts with another object on the layer. No more looping layers.  :)

Brilliant!  Thanks!

Another great way to add pressure and stress to the situation, if you have a illustrative or photographic character.  Have the character turn more significant share of blue as time progresses.  Do that by creating multiple states of the character and each state gradually changes color.  on the timeline set cue points that trigger the different states until the character asphyxiates or is rescued.  

When creating medical training its important to not be squeamish with your subject matter.

CPR is life-or-death if not done in time.  There needs to be a consequence if its done wrong or not in time. eLearning should be more realistic to the subject matter being taught.  That is a challenge with medical procedures, but not too difficult if one is willing to think outside the box.

Hi Tolgan! In order to do that, you need to adjust the default value of the number variable either when you create it or if it's already created you can adjust it by accessing the variables panel and changing it there. So in this case, the default variable value is 10 (which = 10 timer seconds), so you could change it to say 30. Hope that helps I know it's been a while since you asked!
