How are Designers Using Progress Bars in E-Learning? (2019) #224

Using Progress Bars in E-Learning #224: Challenge | Recap

Progress bars, meters, and gauges are a great way to keep learners on track by showing them how far they’ve gone in your course and how far they have left to go.

As a course designer, you have creative freedom to design playful and visually engaging progress bars to help learners track their progress. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to show how progress bars can be used in e-learning. Your example can be static or interactive but share your ideas for helping learners track their progress.

New Entries Only!

We hosted the first progress meters challenge four years ago. Since then, dozens of examples and downloads have been shared in the community. Because progress bars are so popular, we’re asking that you only share new examples in this week’s challenge.
