I like the ideas I get from LinkedIn and eLearning Heroes. In another blog, I mentioned the people I follow and just recently I had an idea from Alexander Salas on using variables and motion paths to create an incremental score in the results slide.
I knew how to put variables in the Master slide for questions to show a score and I often use that to help the learner see how many questions they have completed.
I did not know how to combine motion paths with a variable to have it count the score at the end of the quiz, the results slide.
This is the link Alexander Salas posted of a video he made that clearly describes the process. Great video and he even includes an example file that works in Articulate Storyline 2, 3, or 360. Cool!
I realized this could be the solution I was looking for to complete my game scenarios for the Sententia Games Level 3 certification. It took a bit of time but I figured out how to apply Alexander's concept to my game and then how to reset the game if the person fails.
This example is just a prototype but demonstrates the use of variables to select an avatar and use motion paths for the avatar in the game. It also applies Alexander's use of variables and motion paths to track a score and display it on the results slide. The game also includes other elearning concepts and game mechanics.
As I have been learning, to be gamified, the game needs to have business objectives, a story, and mechanics to help the player learn something as well as have fun.
