We had a user tweet at Lectora recently, asking how he could become better at using variables. This is one of the biggest questions we get from new Lectora® users, so for this month’s Thursday’s Trending Topic, I’m pulling together a bunch of variable resources for you.
You may have noticed that Wendy Miller, our Lead Content Developer, has been sharing an ongoing series of blog articles—and they’re all about variables!

- Lectora Basics: Using User-Defined Variables
- Lectora Basics: About Question Variables
There will be more great posts coming up from Wendy—be sure to subscribe to the Everything eLearning Blog, so you don’t miss any.
Here are a few more articles from the blog on variables. (These are a little older, so you may notice some interface differences between these screenshots and your current version of Lectora—you’re on the latest version, right???—but the concept of variables is the same.)

- Create an Interactive e-Learning Game Using Actions and Variables in Lectora

Wendy has also shared some examples in the Trivantis® Community of ways to use variables. These include downloadable Lectora files, so you can open them up and look at how she did things.
