Why Should E-Learning Designers Learn to Use Variables?
Articulate Storyline's core authoring features (states, layers, and triggers) are the building blocks that make it easy for virtually anyone to create interactive e-learning.
But when you want to create more dynamic and personalized learning experiences, you’ll need to know how to use variables.
Using Storyline’s variables, you can present dynamic content based on your learner’s activity and other defined conditions. Variables can store learner input or quiz results and use the information to present dynamic content based on specific criteria.
And in this week's challenge, we're looking at the true/false variable.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to share an example that demonstrates how true/false variables can be used in e-learning.
Variables can be tricky if you've never used them. If you have a concept or idea you're trying to show but get stuck or have questions, let us know in the forums and we'll help you out.
