Accordion interactions are a great way to group a large amount of related content into single slide.
Similar to tabs interactions, accordions let users explore content using vertical or horizontal layouts.
Accordions can be used to progressively reveal bullet points, quiz questions, module introductions, and summary slides.
Accordion interactions are so easy to build you can use anything from PowerPoint to Storyline. Let’s look at a popular example from our downloads hub:
Horizontal Accordion Template
The accordion interaction was first shared by David Fair. It features multiple tab number variants so that you can quickly adapt it for your course. You can learn more about building this interaction in David’s Word of Mouth blog post.
