Build a Course based to learner's characteristics

Hi all, 

I built a course by using Articulate Storyline  composed of three scenes. all of the scenes are the same topic but the difference s based on learner's learning style. Now, I want to add at the beginning VAK (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic) questionnaire in order to identify the learning style for each student. A student will answer the questionnaire and based on his/her answers, the software will go to one of the three learning styles automatically. How can add this feature to my course.  

Thank you in advance for your help

Hi Zuheir, You can add three triggers in one button by different conditions of the questionnaire score. Such as:

  1. Jump to Scene 1 when the user clicks button on the condition that variable 'Score' is less than...
  2. Jump to Scene 2 when the user clicks button on the condition that variable 'Score' is between...
  3. Jump to Scene 3 when the user clicks button on the condition that variable 'Score' is greater than...

So when a user clicks on the button it will jump to the scene according to the score of the questionnaire.

Thank you so much Joanne,  how can I get the score? I tried to do it in the results slide but it does not wok. Could you send me screen shots ? 

Thank you

Hi Zuheir, 


You will get a variable called Results.ScorePoints if you have a result slide. Use that variable to set your triggers with conditions. As to the button I metioned, it depands on how you like your result slide shows. You can show different layers base on different score points and each layer has a button link dirrectly to the scene. Or you can just use the default next button (If you use default player) and adjust the default trigger into three different triggers to link to the scene base on different conditions.

You can reffer to the attached story file.

Cary Glenn is correct. While implementing this 3-way branching could be a fun technical exercise, it unfortunately has no real value from a learning perspective because it turns out that when researchers rigorously look for evidence of learning styles, they find that learning styles do not exist.

A brief article about this is here: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2011/08/29/139973743/think-youre-an-auditory-or-visual-learner-scientists-say-its-unlikely and a peer-reviewed scientific paper is here: https://www.psychologicalscience.org/journals/pspi/PSPI_9_3.pdf

It would be better to focus time and resources on something that can actually be instructionally effective. 

Cheers!
