For centuries, mankind has been fascinated with the ritual of sport, not only for it’s recreational purposes, but for the camaraderie and storybook-like characters and mythologies that spring from it.
With such a large contingent of our society obsessed with the world of sport, it makes for a useful impulse to tap into for the purposes of eLearning. To add a little athletic flair and pizzaz to your next eLearning course, drop one of these HTML5 game templates into Lectora.
In Jumpshot, the learner takes the perspective of a basketball player, poised at the ready to make as many baskets as possible in the time given. A multiple point quiz at the start adds more time on the clock for every correct answer the learner gives. Then it’s up to the learner to click their mouse just as the ball reaches the center of the bar shown below. But beware: click too soon or too late, and your shot will miss.
Field Goal has similar game mechanics to Jumpshot: Correct answers put more seconds on the timer, allowing the learner to “kick” field goals with well-timed clicks. The main difference, of course, is the switch in theme from basketball to American Football.
In the race car-themed Speedway, the learner views a gauge on a vehicle dashboard. Every correct answer pushes the gauge further and further to the edge, with a maximum of 500 points for game.
In a unique take on game mechanics, Shootout casts the learner as a soccer player attempting to sneak a shot past the goalkeeper. The answer the learner chooses determines the shot’s direction, with all correct answers shooting the ball in a direction which the keeper was ill-prepared to cover. If the answer is incorrect, sorry, but no such luck. The keeper saw that one coming a mile away.
Step onto your own private golf course, with interesting setups and hazards. In Golf Challenge, incorrect answers will send your ball spiraling into a water hazard, sand trap, and other obstacles. Only the correct answer will you score you that coveted hole-in-one.
