RESOLVER- the first ever physical/digital educational card game (built with Storyline)
I wanted to share something with you I created using Storyline. It's called RESOLVER and it’s the first ever physical/digital educational card game. I put together a quick video below that touches on why I made the game, how it was used, and its positive impact on training employees.
Buuut, if you're more of a picture person...
Here's what the box for the game looks like.
It's powered by Near Field Communication(NFC) chips.
These chips are inside physical cards.
When a physical card is scanned over a card reader, it reads a unique number off the NFC chip and sends it to a computer running a game created in Storyline.
When the card reader sends the number, it gets passed into a number input box.
In Storyline, I created a variable that says, set the variable equal to the number when it's entered.
Then, I created a trigger that says, when this happens, jump to the slide that corresponds to the number.
What’s interesting about this is it's merging together real-world items with digital applications, creating a novel learning experience.
I created this game at work to enhance internal training for customer service agents. One of the ways we train is by role-playing common customer issues. With that in mind, the cards in the game have common customer issues printed on them...
...along with corresponding cards that have customer service agent responses (one is correct and two are incorrect).
The game is played by one player scanning a customer issue into the game...
...and then, another player selects from three possible agent response cards and scans one into the game, receiving feedback and points.
It's also worth mentioning that these customer scenario cards have three different levels of difficulty.
Each level is worth its corresponding amount of points. Players find out which level they will receive by rolling a three-sided die before their turn.
If there's interest, I'm happy to share information on how I made the cards and any additional questions regarding how the Storyline file is set up. Thank you for letting me show and tell!
