Showcase Your Favorite Pet Using Common E-Learning Interactions #294

Tabs Interactions Featuring Family Pets #294: Challenge | Recap

One of the most active Slack channels at Articulate is titled #Pawticulate. It's where we share our favorite dogs, cats, turtles, chickens, rabbits, and much more.

Pets are an essential part of our lives. And since I already know all about my co-worker's pets, I thought it would be fun to learn about your pets. And that's what this week's challenge is all about!

AKC Dog Breeds Interaction

This tabs interaction from American Kennel Club has been one my “To Build” list for several years.

The design is minimalist, so there’s not a lot going on visually.

But what I like most about it is how it combines image sliders and labeled graphics in the same interaction. We did something similar in challenge #248, where we combined three or more challenges into a single demo.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to create a tabs-based example using the interaction format on the Dog Breeds pages on American Kennel Club’s website. 

You can choose any animal you like. The challenge is about combining multiple interaction types in a single tabs example.

Feel free to cross-post your example in previous challenges where it fits.

Hi everyone, My demo this week is inspired by my dog, Roxy. Roxy is a Hurricane Dorian survivor from the Bahamas and I adopted her last October. Her family lost everything in the storm and had to give her up. At the age of 10, she lost the only family she ever knew. Fate intervened and I found her story on social media by accident. Through the efforts of a rescue organization in the Bahamas and one in Vermont, Roxy made an epic journey of 1,300 miles by sea, air, and land to become the newest member of my family. The happy news is I have since made contact with her first family and they are able to now follow her new adventures on social media.
