Using Sliders to Design Interactive Infographics #260
Combining Sliders for Interactive Infographics #260: Challenge | Recap
Interactive sliders are a great way to get learners to touch the screen and explore relationships between two or more concepts. In this week’s challenge, we’re looking at how sliders can be used to make data more interactive.

Here’s a good example of how sliders can be used to create interactive infographic. I like this example because it uses a masking effect combined with custom sliders that share a single variable. How does that work? You can read more about Mike’s example and learn how he built it in this article.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to show creative ideas for using sliders to build interactive infographics. Sliders are relatively simple to use in Storyline 360, but your examples could require some advanced techniques.
If you get stuck or have any questions this week, please post your questions in the Storyline forums and we'll help you out.
