When creating an eLearning course, it’s a good practice to display content for the learner in bite-size pieces. For this, we usually create interactive screens with a pop-up, click-reveal text, rollover text, rollover audio, tabs, click-display animation, etc. But the fact that the learner might miss out on some hidden content is always our cause of worry.
Instructional text comes for rescue here to guide the learner to click/roll-over the object. But the instructional text doesn’t seem to be sufficient when you have multiple interactive objects on the screen. In this case, you would like to visually indicate to the learner which objects they have interacted with and which ones are left out.
We can do this by adding event-based highlight effects along with the use of variables and advanced actions.
Take a look at this example:
Isn’t this awesome! As soon as you click a button, the highlight goes off.
