About the Presentation
I set out to think a little more broadly than dissecting a particular interaction since this is an inter-divisional luncheon and all of us have really specific target audiences. So I thought it would be useful to show some grab-and-go type code snippets that folks could use in their own projects. I also thought about the presentation in terms of simple to complex. In the first section, I covered things that I’ve actually done with code in courses I’ve created, moving from simple things (like changing the hover color of a link with CSS) to more complex interactions (like drawing on the screen). In the second part, I demoed even more complex interactions that can be created with code to illustrate the types of places I’d like to go with Lectora in the future. Note: On the penultimate slide, I show a magnification plugin and, if you look closely, you’ll see that it isn’t working quite right. I haven’t yet been able to figure out the necessary math to make this work with the image. But I will!

To Be Continued…
My hope is to continue to create micro-courses on many of the things that I demoed so that other Lectora users can take the code snippets, learn how to use them, and tweak them to fit their own projects. You can find mini-courses I’ve already created here: http://knanthony.com/courses/ I’d love some feedback.
