How Do Course Designers Use Progress Indicators to Display Learner Status? #409

Showing Progress in E-Learning #409: Challenge | Recap

Progress bars are a great way to help learners stay on course by highlighting what they've completed and how far they have left to go.

As course designers, you have many ways to display learner progress. There are barsgaugesbadgespage numbers, and more.
