Text Entry: Storyline Course Starter

This is a freeform text entry interaction that uses Storyline's text entry field to capture a learner's response.

There is also a feedback layer that repeats that captured response back to the learner, and provides prescriptive feedback.

We also include an xAPI trigger to send that learner's statement to your LRS as an "Answered" statement with embedded response that can be charted rather easily.

To edit content, simply select a text element and type over

To replace images, simply right-click and choose Replace Picture.

You can also use the object placeholders on the slide/feedback masters to re-insert images.

On the base layer, xAPI triggers are tied to two objects: the xAPI_Initialize shape, and the Submit Button.

Use the xAPI_Intialize shape to set the activity ID (baseURL), and unique identifier for the slide (objectID).

You can also edit the xAPI (general) description here.

These values persist throughout the interaction

Use the Submit button to edit the verb, etc. values for the Answered statement

If you edit variable names associated with the text box, make sure to adjust its reference on the feedback master for the TextEntryResponse layer
