Use Case Example

Marla is an instructional designer building a compliance elearning course. She wants to know whether the learners click on the optional “Learn More” button on one of the slides, and how this action correlates with the final quiz scores.

Marla sets up a spreadsheet with two columns:

  • “Clicked” – a column that will indicate whether the learner clicked on the button, and,
  • “Score” – a column that will store the learner’s final score.

She then adds a trigger in Storyline to set the value of “Clicked” to True whenever the button is clicked. She also adds a trigger to set the value of “Score” to the number of points the learner scored in the quiz.

Marla deploys her course, and as learners complete it, she keeps an eye on the records populating in the spreadsheet to find out whether clicking the button results in higher quiz scores.
