Elearning Heroes Challenge #71 Math

adobe, captivate, elearning

This morsel of a post was inspired by the Articulate community’s weekly elearning challenge to create a Math(s) based game.

For this challenge my inspiration fell at my feet as my daughter was born November 23rd (11/23) I had to chose the Fibonacci Sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8..)

I took an image that has the ‘golden spiral’ and turned it into a jigsaw. This involved using my preferred image editor GIMP (an Open Source alternative to Photoshop) and I cut out the pieces to the exact Fibonacci size (13,21,34)

The next step was to turn these images into a jigsaw  using Adobe Captivate’s drag and drop feature  and creating individual actions that reveals the next number (13,21 and 34) of the sequence when placed (dropped)

Lastly an action for drag and drop was needed to show the complete image when the last ‘drop’ of the jigsaw was done.

This was a fun exercise for me and done in the shortest time for an Elearning heroes challenge.

Have a go at the sample below
