Variables 101: Learn the Basics and More with Lectora University

Want to easily customize your e-Learning course? Of course you do! And you can—with variables in Lectora® e-Learning software. Variables were a hot topic at the 2014 Lectora User Conference this year. We’re not surprised; they’re what makes Lectora so powerful!

According to conference presenters James Thompson and James Rice, variables play an important role in computer programming. Variables make it easy for anyone to create interactivity—which is one of the cool benefits of Lectora. You don’t need to be a computer programmer to create engaging e-Learning courses because you can use Lectora’s variables!
