Using conceptually linked images is also a great way to introduce new concepts and to enhance related information, making it easier for learners to digest and memorise.
Note: Before you begin creating your Drop Tab Template, you’ll need to prepare your image or images. You’ll need to adjust the size of your images depending on how many you want in your template. A width of 1100 pixels works best for one image, 550 pixels is best for two, around 360 pixels is best for three images, 275 pixels works well for four images, and 220 pixels is optimal for five images.
Let’s learn how you can make your own Drop Tab Template in eCoach:
Step 1: Select the Drop Tab Template from the ‘Presentation’ panel.
Step 2: Drag your Drop Tab 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.
Step 6: To start building your Drop Tab Template, select the green ‘Add New Item’ button.
Step 7: Choose your image and enter a description for it. For more information on using the ‘Add Image’ button, click here.
Image Tips: Choosing your image sizes for the Drop Tab Template depends on how many images you’d like to display. For 2 images, try sizes of 280 x 200 pixels. For 3, try 260 x 190 pixels. For 4, try 220 x 150 pixels. For 5, try 180 x 120 pixels. For 6, try 165 x 112 pixels.
Step 8: When you’re done adding your image and text, select the green checkmark to save your changes.
Note: To add additional list segments, simply repeat the process.
You can re-order each item by using the ‘drag and drop’ handles on the left. The order they’re displayed in here is the order that will be displayed to Participants.
Step 9: To preview your interactive template, click on the ‘preview’ icon.
