This is a screenshot of a hotspot-based Rise interaction.

Project Goal: To allow students to learn about different animals within different environments.

Method: Each number is a pop-up that tells a story about an animal.  By keeping the student within the “environment” made it much easier for them to not only associate the animal with that environment but also which animals live together.  This was much more effective than the text list such as below that was how they would learn it before we made the interaction.

  • Animal
  • Environment
  • About 

Result:  Students were more successful on the exam which asks about environments and also asks the student to make associations about what animals live together.
