Articulate Challenge #125: Gamify Your E-Learning with Scratch-Off Cards

My entry for Articulate’s #ELHChallenge 125 is a gamified demo called ERASE & REPLACE.

I created this demo using Plotagon animation, and edited the result in Camtasia. I imported the video into Storyline 2, to incorporate the interactions. Learners identify misspelled words, erase them, and type in the correct spelling. The feedback is immediate, and utilizes the learner’s name, if they have typed it in on the opening screen.




Authoring Tools:  Plotagon, Camtasia, Storyline 2.

    I just love your site Tracy. I really miss e-learning heroes. My job changed to a boring storyboard writing, IMI level 1. I am no longer with DND so I am trying to get back with Storyline. So much to catch up on. I don’t have 360…yet!

      Thanks so much! I also miss the e-Learning heroes challenges; I haven’t had as much time to keep up with them lately. 360 is great, but quite expensive, due to the subscription model!

    I like Plotagon and have tried it quite some time ago. Will get back to it soon.

    Cute Erase & Replace!

  • Amy Edmonds says:

    could erase and replace be used to erase a large area, like simulating spraying a restaurant table with disinfecting spray to kill all of the germs? the key is to erase all of the area, not just “one and done”

    • tcar2000 says:

      Hi Amy,

      Yes, the size of the area to be erased could be adjusted. It’s been several years since I created this example, but I do remember downloading some examples from the Articulate E-Learning Heroes website to see how it was done. This challenge is located at:
      There are several scratch-off Storyline files available for download on the site, along with explanations of how the examples were created.

      Best regards,
