Since the late 1800’s, word lovers have enjoyed flexing their mental muscles by cracking open a crossword puzzle and showing those little black and white squares who’s boss. Whether you’re on a plane looking at the in-flight magazine trying to solve for 7 Across or sitting in the comfort of your recliner solving for 21 Down as you bask in the warmth of a nice autumn fire, crosswords provide a fun opportunity to test terms and definitions.
This popular crossword puzzle game made its debut into our Lectora templates recently and we think you’re totally going to want to make “a descending duplication” of it!
The functionality is simple, and what you might expect of a crossword game that’s made its way into an eLearning course. The clues are given on two separate slides, one for Across and the other for Down. The answers are arranged on a 12×12 board to the left, which is completely customizable to match the terms and phrases you need your learners to understand.
Users can type a letter into each white box until the puzzle has been filled. Once they submit, every letter they guessed correctly will turn green. Those that were incorrect—either as wrong words or misspellings—will turn red. Keep guessing and making corrections until you get them all right!
In addition to the clues and answers, any of the text, colors, images, and actions are completely customizable. Lectora users can down the template right now through their software as a part of their purchase of Lectora Inspire. For this, and many other great Lectora templates, check out our vast library of assets today!
