Nashville Notes: The Power of Lectora at the LUC 2015


In this “Nashville Notes” post, I’m highlighting breakout sessions at the 2015 Lectora® User Conference that demonstrate the incredible power of Lectora. Whether you’re a beginner or a long-time Lectora pro, you’ll find endless creative possibilities with this authoring tool. 

These are just a few of the conference sessions focusing on the power of Lectora:

Buttons, Tests and Pictures, Oh My! Going Beyond the Basics with Lectora – Angel Tracy, Grays Harbor Community Hospital

Just learned the basics of Lectora and wonder what to do with all of your newfound skills? Want to use Lectora to make your modules more entertaining and sensational? Choose this session and you won’t be disappointed! Learn what you can build in Lectora with a minimum of knowledge. Have fun creating buttons from pictures, using Snagit for photo editing, adding bells and whistles to make a humdrum test enjoyable, and much more.

Menus, Badges, Game Boards & More: Who Knew Status Indicators Could Do All That! – Tanya Seidel, Artisan eLearning

In this session, learn how the Status Indicator object works in Lectora, the actions and conditions you can use with it, and how you can put it to use within your courses to create badges, menus, process flows, game boards, and more! You will see several examples of course content that use status indicators and will learn how each was built so you can incorporate some of the ideas into your own courses.

JavaScript Integration for Beginners – Becky Goldberg, Travelers Companies

One of Lectora’s great strengths is the ability to extend native options by integrating custom code. This session walks through how Travelers used JavaScript and Lectora to accommodate the best instructional design without compromise. Specific applications include controlling content based on date, determining browser size, and posting content to SharePoint lists. If you’re a code dabbler, a JavaScript newbie, a daring developer… you’ll leave this session with the information you need to get JavaScript up and running in your title and an appetite to go further.

For even more sessions about the power of Lectora and all the creative ideas our users have come up with, take a look at the LUC 2015 sessions list.
