Drag Anyone Into Anything!
Now, with Articulate Storyline, anyone can drag anyone into anything!
Creating drag and drop quizzes in Articulate Storyline is as easy as 1-2-3. All you need to do is to click on the `Convert to Freeform’ and choose `Drag and Drop’.
Here, you will be able to match one object to another.
But what if you are building a scenario based course? You want to let the user drag and drop the object on any of the many options, and explore each option that way. Technically, we have one item, and many targets, with customized feedback. In such a situation, we cannot use the `Drag and drop’ freeform tool.
This is where the triggers come to our rescue.
Let’s take an example to demonstrate this –
I have a scenario in which the learner can drag and drop the tourist into any of the three countries (well, not literally, just technically speaking J ), and an information about that country pops up.
Below is a screenshot of the trigger I have used –
So the moral of the story (Storyline, rather) is not to limit yourself to the off-the-shelf options provided. Just playing around a bit with the triggers can stretch the software's capability almost as much as your creativity!
