How to Alert Users to Click the Next Button in E-Learning #293

Next Button Alerts and Notifications in E-Learning #293: Challenge | Recap

Generally, when someone asks about the ubiquitous next button, they’re looking for creative ideas to move beyond the default next button. Other times they’re looking for help building animated button effects to liven up their course design. 

But in a recent training webinar, someone asked something different and I thought it would make a fun and easy challenge.

This time, the question was around drawing attention to the next button. She wanted to help learners know when it’s time to click next without having to narrate “Click next to continue” at the end of every slide. Finding ways to highlight, emphasize, and help learners find the next button is what this week's challenge is all about!
