JavaScript Integration for Beginners


Mrs. Becky Goldberg, Senior Instructional Designer-Developer

Travelers Insurance

Session Objectives:

  1. How to get JavaScript set up in a title
  2. How to run a function from Lectora, and how to transfer variables
  3. When to use native Lectora functions versus writing functions in JavaScript



One of Lectora's great strengths is its ability to extend with other languages. Pretty much whatever you want to do, you can accomplish in Lectora--if not natively, then by integrating some external code. This session focuses on the basics of integrating JavaScript into a Lectora title, and walks through a couple real-life examples of how JavaScript was used to execute designs without compromising using Lectora.

This session is designed for non-coders. The target audience is code-dabblers, instructional designers-turned-developers, and others with a cursory (or less!) familiarity with code. The session starts with JavaScript syntax basics, the bulk of the session focuses on JavaScript-Lectora integration, and concludes with 2 case studies.
