The click-and-reveal interaction is a tool used frequently throughout eLearning courses and is a very common Articulate Storyline template found in our library. Most commonly, click-and-reveal interactions tend to be used for segmenting large batches of information that have no real great way to be presented other than to have a learner read it. If you are able to, you can use these types of interactions to help make associations to certain ideas or images you may find important, creating a little more value to the information you’re attempting to present.
However you choose to do it, we’ve got the templates to reveal your content just the way you want. These four click-and-reveal Storyline templates will give you a sample of how to get it done.
Click and Reveal Glossary
This simple, but useful, template is a great way to sort and store terms and definitions that you need a learner to understand prior to completion of a course. Place each one on its appropriate layer and click around each letter to see them. The flat design is also shared by a number of other interactions (including a few drag and drops as well), so you can keep a unified style.
Sometimes you need to make sure that your learners are right on target. This particular click-and-reveal is great for helping them know a “good, better, best” scenario. As they click on each concentric circle, you can show them how a process goes from being off the mark to a dead-on bullseye. Alternatively, you can also use this to demonstrate ideas that are at a surface level and how they work down to a core ideology. This Circles Diagram is a great way to make sure that your learners aim right for the center.
People Circle Viewer
On the surface, this interaction seems like a great way to introduce important people in a company or to show how different people might respond to a given situation. But why stop with just people? This interaction would work very well for pieces of job-specific equipment, important office locations, or even a group of HR documents better viewed on their own layers. Just simply swap out the picture of a person and drop in whatever picture appropriate for the idea you need to get across. This template is a great multi-tasker!
Pie Chart Interaction
Information can sometimes be broken down by percentages. How many consumers prefer pizza to hot dogs to hamburgers? While the obvious choice in my opinion is pizza, your learners may be surprised to find out that the most popular answer is possibly different. (How could that be?!) Your data is likely to provided a far more valuable point than this, and there’s nothing quite like an interactive chart to help get that point across. Each one of these sections can also be adjusted to fit whatever sizing needs your data could want!
The click and reveal templates in our Template Library can be far more valuable than for simple information dumps. Take advantage of the information to help make associations that might be harder to make if you just simply had to read everything and attempt to synthesize it without engaging that visual part of your brain! Try to make that click mean something more if you can. And if that isn’t really possible, because sometimes it really isn’t, at least these templates will make your information look great.
