Tutorial: Generating Random Words or Phrases in Storyline

Have you ever wanted Storyline to display a random word or phrase? I don't mean just randomly popping up and saying "whale" or "can't cut the mustard", but displaying a word or phrase randomly from a list that you prepared earlier.

Maybe you want to quiz people on the definition of some words? Or check if they understand the meaning of a phrase?

Or perhaps you are creating a language based course and you'd like to randomise the words that they are practising?

In this tutorial, we will look at how to randomly pick a word or phrase from a predefined list.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments or are stuck with implementing any of this. I'm happy to help where I can.
