Having a functional menu without a wrapper
I am creating a course for a client. The design calls for no wrapper. I have put the navigation buttons on the slide itself, but I need to allow the learner to navigate throughout the course. I've come up with three options, none of them ideal, and was hoping someone might have a solution that I've missed.
The options I thought of all involve building a nice button to be on every slide that triggers a jump to a special "menu" page. One option has the standard, built in menu as a sidebar turned on only for that one slide. The next option also uses the built-in functionality - the word "menu" floats above the slide where the wrapper would be (I've made the wrapper transparent) and is a drop down showing all the pages. My final idea was to forgo the real menu altogether and just have text boxes (Lesson 1 intro, Lesson 1 Knowledge Check, Lesson 2 intro, etc) with triggers to take the learner to those few key pages.
I'm not thrilled by any of my ideas. Does anybody know of a way to get a fully functioning menu in a wrapperless design?
