The inspiration for Accessibility BINGO hails from E-Learning Challenge #339 from the Articulate E-Learning Heroes Community. The prompt was to create an interactive BINGO game using buzzwords from our industry. I decided to put my own twist on my submission and focus on accessibility in course creation and web design.
This project presented a lot of challenges for me! With a massive amount of variables, triggers, hidden objects, and slide layers, there was a lot of programming I had to do on the back-end. I had to test each BINGO option (horizontal, vertical, and diagonal) to ensure the user was rewarded, as well as test that the rest of the squares wouldn’t trigger additional BINGOs for users that will clear the entire board.
Although challenging, it was an absolute delight to work on this project and I lost myself in my work many nights. You know you truly love what you do when working in Storyline excites you, even through the challenges!
