Advice and answers from the eCoach Team

When your Participants roll over these hotspots, text will appear. This means that you can explain complex graphics as your Participants are viewing them! 

Let’s learn how you can make your own Hotspot Template in eCoach:

Step 1: Select the Hotspot Template from the ‘Presentation’ panel.

Step 2: Drag your Hotspot Template into the Lesson Pathway.

Step 3: Give your new Tile a title.

Step 4: Click the yellow ‘Edit Screen’ button.

Step 5: From the edit screen, you can choose to change your title, and enter a description. A description is optional, and will appear under your title if you chose one.

Note: You can change the Tip Width, Tip Font Size, and Spot Radius of your Hotspots. Tip Width adjusts the horizontal size of the popup text area, Tip Font Size adjusts the size of all text, and Spot Radius adjusts the radius of your hotspot marks.

Step 6: Upload an image using the ‘Add Image’ button. For more information on using the ‘Add Image’ button, click here.

Image Tips: Our suggested image size for the Hotspot Template is 1170 x 550 pixels.

Step 7: To start adding hotspots to your image, select the green ‘Add Hotspot’ button.

Step 8: Use your mouse to drag and position your new hotspot. When it’s in place, give your hotspot a title and description. You can also adjust the width and position of your hotspot, with position referring to which way the hotspot will pop up. For example, if you select ‘right’, your hotspot’s text will appear to the right of its marker when your Participant rolls over it with their mouse.

Note: To add additional hotspots, simply repeat the process.

Step 9: To preview your interactive template, click on the ‘preview’ icon.
