This week’s challenge was to share an example of how notecard interactions can be used in e-learning. My gut instinct was to go with my favourite style for learning objective click and reveal interactions:
But then I haven’t participated in the ELH Challenges lately, so I figured it would be nice to whip something up quickly.
In considering this challenge, I got Pantone colour chips in my head…not sure why, but that’s where my Saturday night brain was going, so I thought it might be neat to have Pantone-style chips that when clicked, reveal the year in which the colour was Pantone’s colour of the year.
To do this, I created the chips, with two shapes: 1 rectangle with a white fill, no border, and a lower-left shadow. The next shape was used for the text, it was a rectangle with white fill and no border. I then looked up a group of Pantone’s colours of the year, took a screenshot, and tossed the image into Storyline as a basis. For the colour section of the chip, I used the colour picker to achieve accurate swatches, and then added the text to the lower rectangle.
I copied these shapes three more times, for four shapes in total and repeated the process. Once finished, I grouped each chip’s shapes, added a trigger to show layer, and created a new layer for each chip; on this layer, I simply added the year in which the colour was Pantone’s colour of the year.
