In the past four months, I have shared a lot of things which we can do with Articualte Stroyline to satisfy online training requirements. Here, I would like to share a requirement of one of our clients and how we satisfied it.
The client wanted to enable his learners to enter text in the notes pane of the slides of the eLearning course and also enable the learners to take a print of the text they have entered.
Our Solution : We have followed the below steps to meet that requirement.
Step 1 : Create a layer called “Notes_Layer”, and insert a text entry field into it.
Step 2 : When we insert a text entry field, a default variable “TextEntry” will be created. For our convenience,we can rename that variable as “notes1”.
Step 3 : Insert a textbox containing the text “Take Notes” and assign a trigger “Show layer Notes_Layer when user clicks Take Notes”.
Step 4 : Repeat the steps 1, 2 and 3 in all slides and make sure that the names of the text variables are different for each slide. Here, I took four slides. So,I have named the the text variables as “notes1”, “notes2”, “notes3” and “notes4”.
Step 5 : Create a summary page so that the learner knows the text he has entered in each page. For this, we should display the values of all the text variables(notes1, notes2, notes3 and notes4)
“ myWindow = window.open(“”,”Print”,”width=810,height=610,scrollbars=1,resizable=1″);
var contents = “<html><head></head><body style=’width:650px;padding:20px;’>”
Step 8 : Now publish your course and check your output.
This is how we can enable the learners to take the print of the text they have entered. Have anything to say? Please do share!
