Storyline 360: How to create engaging text variables interactions

In this video i’’ll show you to use text variables in storyline Articulate 360 to create an engaging interaction with text variables, text entry field and a little bit of javascript.

I have a fictional course where users learns how to write an engaging tweet. I have three slides with text entry fields. In each text entry field the user types a part of the tweet. The part of the tweet is stored in a text variable and is shown on the following slide. This is done by adding the text variable between % signs in a tekstbox.

On the last slide of my scene i added a trigger that executes several lines of javascript to combine my storyline text variables into one text variable that is displayed on my last slide.
