1. E learninggamesintro: in the session. We're going to look at using Google slides to build an E learning game. Learning games air from way to reinforce learning, and you can at the mass activity breaks your course. You can also use e learning games for marketing and for marketing your course and building them using Google presentations. You can easily embed them into your website or your blog's. Let's hop into our Google drive and have a look at this. 2. E learning games: So what? We're in Google Drive. What we can do is we can go to new and then if we go to Google Slides and a new slide presentation that is going to open so we're gonna do is we're going to just pick team were to select a simple team. Select. Okay, I go to just remove thes header boxes by clicking on them and pressing delete. So the first thing we want to do is we want to put in an introductory. She's So we put in a header. So we would say, insert, we're gonna put in the text box, we're gonna put it up the top of their header. I'm gonna enter in some text we're gonna put in learning educators demonstration game. We're not going to insert another textbooks. And in this text books, we're going to enter some more text. Next thing we want to do is insert an image. So if we go to insert insert image, we can then upload an image. We can take a snapshot or weaken at an image from our Google drive or somewhere else, so we will add our image and we just move. It's likely so it doesn't overlying the text. The next thing we want to do is we want to put in a book in. So what we're gonna do is we're actually going to use a shape. So we go into our shapes and we can select any shape like select the shape here. I'm not strong down here. I'm Let's type in here. Continue in here. We can then make the text bold. We can also center the text and we now have our little continue Bolton. Now what we're gonna do is we're going to duplicate this slight because we can just use that as a template on. We've in our first line. We had welcome on background on her second slide, we're gonna put in some instructions and all we have to do is overwrite this text here. Okay, so then we have our 1st 2 slots. That staff are game, so I've copied that slide on. I'm working on the third side. I'm gonna delete all of this and I'm going to leave the header in place. I'm gonna change the background of this Teoh a green color Onda, I I'm going to draw some pictures to make a game. So let's insert some shapes. We will get some circles. What? Okay, Lets just move these around. So I inserted hysterical, and then I copied it. Andi, I pressed paste. I made sure I have all of these lined up. Now we want to make this a game. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna build rolled as you've seen from the example True. The game. So I'm gonna insert another shape, and I'm going to insert a rectangle. Police over. They look bigger, rotated a little lifted, appear Line it up. Basically on, then I am going to send it backwards. I'm gonna bring this one forward. Bring to front. I'm gonna bring this one forward, bring to front. I'm gonna copy this because this could then be used over here on over here on here, and then I can just rotate them around. Okay, so now I'm going to insert a line to make it look like a road. Insert a line from there to there. It's straight here. More looks more in the middle. I'm that I'm gonna change the type of line to a dotted line to make it look like a road We're gonna copy that. We're gonna put it on the other roads to now going to insert some text to the box. So if I right click on, I can add a text, I am going to stay. Stage one. Start here. I'm gonna put this in red because it's the 1st 1 I'm going to center it. I'm gonna make a bold in here. I'm gonna do the same at a text. Now, I'm gonna insert some images, so I gotta put car here. We're gonna drive on each stage until we get to the end. So let's put in another image for the end. Now, we have our game type templates ready, and we can put in our first question. So I'm gonna take slide to I'm gonna copy slight to I'm going to remove the continue button , and I am going to overwrite the instructions with the first question, and I'm gonna make this text box a lot smaller on that. I'm gonna put in two buttons with my suggested answers. So again we will just insert some shapes on, would put some text into them. So now we have two suggested answers. We have a question which Google Tool was used to create the sea learning game with two suggested answers and that we need a slide for a right answer. And we need a slide for a wrong answer. So we make a duplicate again off the slide to Andi. I'm going to delete the image. This time I'm gonna inserting new image, and I'm going to update the instructions. And I'm gonna remove this Bolton. And I think I'll insert a Miller image to this page so that we have your correct page. So let's put it, you are wrong, Page. So we will just copy this one on. We will remove this image and were put in a different image of losing type image on. We'll update our text. Delete this Ever here. Well, this up a bit. So now we have our question. We've are right. Answer. We've are wrong. Answer. So we need to duplicate our template. Here. Copy this. We'll bring the stand here on what's gonna happen is one that passed. This guy's gonna cool appear will change this two black, I would say complete. We will change this to read because it's the active stage. So we built our template. Now they're the key to building an e learning game in Google Slides or Power Point, for that matter is the linking I'm gonna go back from that and through all these slights and I'm gonna show you how we actually link all of these slides together. It's a background slide warned. We have continue. So let's right click on this and let's go to link on. Do you see them here? It says slides in this presentation on What we're gonna do is we're actually just going to go to the next slide and pressed, apply on our second slide, were also going to go to our link, and we're gonna go to the next side and press apply now we're in our game as such. So what will happen is we're in. He learning educators. The welcome in the background. When we got in, next life jumps us to the next slide. Next life will then jump us to the game. So what we want here is to take this circle here and we want to link this circle here to our question one. So if we go to link slides in this presentation that we know from our side. Fire over here, It's slide number four. So weaken squirrel down here and we can actually slept with such light number, which is slide number four on select apply. So that's no gym to slide Number four and importance us to our question. Which Google Tool was used to create this e learning game? Google slides or Google sheets? Google slides is are correct. Answer. So we need to link this particular 12 are correct answer sheet. So if we link slides in this presentation on the correct answer slide is slide number five and apply on our incorrect answer slide, which we're gonna link is going to be slide in this presentation. Slide number six. I'm press supply. So let's go down to slide number five on and you were correct. Move on to the next stage. This is going to go to our game slide. So if we click on this link and it's gonna link to slide number seven, one of the problems that I've had with using Google docks in the browser is that if you're linking is down the bottom, you can't. You can't seem to scroll down. So you've got to solutions for this, you can either change the zoom or you can just temporarily move your book, not just put a temporary move. My Bolton, and then I'm going to link it. We could see more of the slides now outside seven. Apply. We're gonna move booking back Dan on our wrong answer. Well, we want to go back to our questions so they can re select the question. So let's other link on the slide in this presentation, which is slight. Number four apply. And then this, well, that and bring us back down into the game. But when they get correct, so we have already linkages set up for the start of the game. It's very easy now to copy and paste thes slide. So if we take from slide for slide five, my presence control and selecting them six and seven. If we copy all of them, I'm paste them as new slides. So we have Stage two. Let's go back up here and I want to our original Stage two on. We need to link this to our second question, which is going to be Slide eight and press supply. So that one I'm going to slide eight. But if we go to slide eight, we can see now that our links have updated. So it's now going to slide nine, which means are incorrect. Answer is now going to slight 10. If we go to our correct answer, this is going to slide 11 which we can see over here. It's like 11. They were going to need to update this light as well. We'll need to move this down. You'll need to change this to complete on Change this to read and hyper leaving this to the next one, and at the end you will get a game as the game that I showed in the introduction to this particular session. Don't forget, you can actually download the template there I have built, and you can use it as a template. But it's very important that you know how to actually build these type of games. These type of games can be built extremely similarly using Microsoft Power Point, and it's the hyper linking that is important
