How do you slow down the flow of information and give learners a chance to reflect or take action? Gate screens, of course!
This week’s challenge recap features gate screens for sharing resources, reviewing course material, self-evaluations, and so much more!
Hope you all enjoy the gate screen examples below. A big thanks to everyone who participated and made this week’s challenge a big success! Have a great week and see you in next week’s flat design challenge!

Lucia shared a decision-making gate that asked learners to confirm their scenario choices or return to make a different selection. This is a practical approach for a lot of the courses we design in corporate e-learning.
Blair took things in a creatively different direction by overlaying ribbon-styled gates over the in-slide video. While this approach is more subtle than the others, it’s an ideal solution that keeps the learner in the moment. Blair also shared his source files in this forum thread. Thanks, Blair!

Jackie shared a gate screen concept that’ll keep learners yodeling all the way to their final quiz.
Lesley shared a gate screen to allow users to confirm their answers before proceeding to the results slide. Cool idea, Lesley!
