This will get you started with using DialogForm for creating e-Learning content.
DialogForm is a tool for creating engaging e-Learning content. It lets you create content in the form of a conversation (or a series of conversations) between the teacher and the user.
You can create entire lessons, or even just supplement your existing lessons with natural, free-flowing conversational assessments or explanations that not only keep the user engaged, but also provide you as the teacher with fine-grained control over personalizing and analyzing the user's learning journey.
Before you start creating your content, here's a little bit of DialogForm terminology we would like to introduce.
Each unit of learning content you will create in DialogForm is called a flow. You can design a flow to be a complete lesson, a part of a lesson, a set of questions to be answered by the user, or even just a single question - it's up to you.
A flow is made up of prompts. A prompt is a message from the chatbot to the user. Together with the message, a prompt also contains possible answers, if any, to expect from the user in response to the message. For each answer, the prompt also specifies which next prompt to show.
Once you create a flow, you can generate a share link (a URL) to share the flow with a user. Normally, you will copy and paste the URL in the appropriate place in your Learning Management System (LMS). Many LMSes support rendering 3rd party URLs.
When a user interacts with a flow via the share link, this is termed as a chat. You can see & analyze users' individual chat histories on DialogForm. A chat is considered complete when there is no next prompt to show to the user.
Check out our tutorial, which takes you through many of DialogForm's features and shows you how to put them together to create and deliver a piece of learning content.
Or if you prefer a more exploratory approach, play around with DialogForm, and as you discover its features, learn more about them in the User Guide to help you along.
