It's a Match! Matching Drag and Drop Tutorial

Drag and drop interactions are an eLearning staple. I love that there are so many different ways to use a drag and drop—matching, sorting, labeling items, etc. Plus, as a learner, there is something so satisfying about dragging an answer into the correct spot!

In this video, we’re going to take a look at the structure of our Starter Matching Drag and Drop Storyline template, and learn how to make a few edits to the file.

This is a pretty straightforward file, as far as custom draggers go. One slide. Two layers. All interaction content is on the base layer. Feedback is on the “Correct” layer.

One thing to note at the top of this discussion: While you may notice the Form View option is present in the sidebar, we’re not controlling this drag and drop through it. We’re using that for randomization, but everything else that makes this interaction “tick” is handled in the Slide Triggers.

To edit any content, select the appropriate text box and have at it! Same with fill color, stroke, style, etc. There’s not a ton more to say about this template beyond the extremely awesome xAPI integration we’ve included. Check out our other support videos for more information on xAPI, but for now, we’re done. Thanks!
