E-learning developers use sliders to create some really cool learning experiences, from self-assessment tools to interactive games. Interactive sliders are a fantastic way to let learners explore and control a wide range of options and on-slide objects. Common use cases include:
- Exploring cause-and-effect relationships
- Manipulating data and numeric values
- Controlling objects such as characters, images, and graphics
With so many possibilities, it can be tricky to picture the very best way to apply these interactions in your own courses. And that’s what this week’s e-learning challenge is all about!
Slider Starter Kit
Here's a free slider pack that features five different designs using Storyline's built-in theme colors.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to share a new slider interaction. If you’re brand new to Storyline, try reworking one of the slider templates in the downloads section. For those of you with some slider experience, try sharing something more complex like combining sliders to create the parallax effect.
New Entries Only!
For this week’s challenge, we’re asking you only share new examples. You're welcome to rework an earlier example or come up with something entirely different.
