JavaScript Integration for Beginners

Intermediate

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

 

Description:

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.
