Timeline interactions are a great way to condense a large amount of information into a simple slide while providing our learners a visual way to experience the content.
Timeline interactions, like tabs, are similar in that they provide course designers with a visual way to organize and present information. However, there are some differences in how each interaction is designed.
While tabs interactions present related content in a non-linear way, timeline interactions present a sequence of content chronologically. Learners can still pull content non-linearly, but the content should follow a chronological order of events or milestones.
