It can be challenging to present information-rich content like policy and instruction manuals, or training guides, in an exciting and fresh way. That’s where interactive documents come in handy—bringing new energy to otherwise dry material, encouraging learners to explore, and keeping them engaged.
There are many ways to create interactive documents, one of which is using sliders. Slider interactions give learners a novel way to interact with content, allowing them to move through it at a pace that works for them. Check out these six interactive documents with sliders created by the talented members of the E-Learning Heroes community to explore the possibilities.
Take a look:
- This interactive geography example by Joyce Maurin lets learners see how the territories of different empires evolved through the years.
- Use interactive sliders to make it easy for learners to follow instructions like Ron Katz does in this Rubik’s cube example.
- This wheelchair securement training manual by Daniel Jovanov breaks down important information into bite-size pieces to make sure learners can absorb it all.
- Add step numbers to your interactive slider like Sunet Sullivan does in this hiker’s survival guide to make it easy for learners to follow.
- Learners can slide their way to more beautiful skin with this calming skincare routine guide by Yvonne Rosas.
- This clever slider interaction example by Katelin J helps learners grasp the different Creative Commons license attributions.
