Let’s Play Connect 4! is my response to Articulate’s E-Learning Heroes Challenge #243: How Would You Build a Connect Four E-Learning Game?
I never played Connect Four–I’d never even heard of Connect Four, before being introduced to it through the Articulate E-Learning Heroes website. So, instead of trying to come up with a different version of the Storyline game available on the Articulate website (created by Russell Killips), I decided to add elements to it.
Animated Into, Instructions, and Sound Effects
I added an animated introduction, created with Plotagon animation, and edited with Camtasia video editing software. I also included a lightbox with instructions, accessible to users like myself who are new to the game. In addition, I included some sound effects on the Winner and Draw slides.

This looks great! I love the demo version. When I tried the challenge, I had a lot of trouble, switching states of blue or red based on turn order. What variable did you use to use to determine whether red or blue dropped?
Thank you, Emma. There are several variables involved. You can download the Connect 4 Storyline file from the free download link I provided at the end of the blog post, if you would like to check out how the game is set up.
