You can use form fields as variables to enable learner-input to trigger certain events. For example, you may use a form field variable for verifying a users input in compare and contrast exercise, or for assessing a software simulation that requires users to input text.
To make form fields available as variables:
- Enter a distinct title into the Title field on the workspace toolbar for each of your Text Input elements.
- From the Interaction tab, select Form Fields.
- The Forms Fields panel will open. You will see your distinctly named Text Input elements. From the Variable column select New Variable.
- Assign the element a new variable name.
- Click OK to complete.
