Turn On The Light Activity


Turn On The Light

This course will guide participants through the process of creating an authentic multi-page interactive application in Smart Notebook 10. Users will build a fun review game called Turn On the Light that will challenge students to solve a problem and then search around the page using a flashlight to see if they can reveal the correct answer. When they think they have found the correct answer, they touch the light switch to see if they are correct. If they are correct, the lights will turn on and they can go to the next question. If the student touches the wrong light switch, the lights will stay off and they will be told to return to the original question.
