Using scrolling panels in eLearning projects makes it easy to organize content so that learners can easily digest complicated information. Our interaction shows three ways to save energy in your home.


Our submission for Articulate’s eLearning Challenge #273: Using Scrolling Panels in eLearning (2020) is one-slide interaction features a simple, soft color scheme with blue and tan colors.


We developed this interaction using a few simple techniques in Articulate Storyline 360: scrolling panel, buttons, slide layers, triggers and a variable. The slide layers hold the image and content for each button. The button triggers when the user clicks a call-out, which shows the corresponding slide layer content and changes the state of the call-out button to a different color. This feature makes it clear to learners that they visited the content. Finally, as the user clicks each tab the variable adds a count of one. When the count reaches three, all the call-out buttons have been activated and the conclusion slide layer appears.

Development Time

This simple interaction took us roughly an hour to create and revise. If you would like more details on our process or a copy of the template, contact us.
