Accordian Style Interactivity

Nov 30, 2016

I have an accordion style interaction.  Currently I instruct my learners to "explore by clicking each column for more details." 

How do I let them know that when they get click a column, that column will move to the left.  I'm not sure that they will understand this is an "Accordion."

Thanks!!!!

Wendy, thanks for your response. Well a colleague couldn't figure it out and she said that I should explain it more.  I didn't have a problem.  So I was wondering if anyone else had some good verbiage to use.

This is what I have: "clicking each of the columns for more
details. Each column will move left and right as you visit it."

What do you think?

I thought your initial directions made sense - and the additional ones seems a bit more overkill. But you know your users - so if one of them is having difficulty and you think that one is representative of the group as a whole, then go with the additional, more fleshed out directions.
