Our sense of touch makes things real to us. When we can get our hands on a thing, it goes from being conceptual to being part of our environment. That’s powerful—and it tends to leave a more lasting impression than just reading or hearing about something.
That said, it can be tricky to bring that tangible quality to e-learning courses. Drag-and-drop interactions help bridge the gap between real-world tactile learning and engaging e-learning. By getting learners to click on objects and move them around the screen, you’re able to bring some of that physical engagement to an e-learning experience.
If you’re interested in experimenting with drag-and-drop interactions, but aren’t quite sure what you’d do, these downloads can help you get started.
