How to ask the learner to enter his name and reuse the name later

Mar 22, 2014


I would like to ask the learner in slide 1 to enter his/her name and re-use this name later in the course, in different slides / layers coming later in the course.

Could you please let me know how to do this?

Hi Noemi, you start by inserting a text entry field on your slide. Put an instruction asking the user to enter his or her name. If you look at the trigger, you will see the the field is called TextEntry.  

On the screens where you want the name to display, add a text box with the following text. %TextEntry%

Right now, there isn't a variable or text input feature in Rise 360.

One idea is to use a Storyline block, but it would be contained inside the block. Here is a neat certificate generator built by Phil:

I'll leave it to the community for any other concepts!
