Using E-Learning to Show How Things Work #398

Showing How Stuff Works #398: Challenge | Recap

Have you ever found yourself wondering how something works? We all have—whether it's a piece of technology, a favorite snack, or even something as simple as a light switch. It's natural to be curious about how things work, and it's a great way to learn and understand the world around us. It's also a great way to practice building better e-learning. And that's what this week's challenge is all about.

This week, your challenge is to share a simple demo or interaction to show how something works.
