A slider can be moved in two directions (left-to-right & right-to-left). This is typically used to move/rotate an object (or a group) back-and-forth/up-and-down, e.g. and image or a bar chart. If you move a slider left-to-right to display learning objectives that's fine, but what should happen if you move it in the opposite direction? Shoud the leaning objectives disappear again? Because if they don't, the slider would look 'broken' when you move from right-to-left.

Having said that, I have no idea what your actual content looks like so it may be perfectly fine to use a slider.

Completely see where you're coming from Michael. It's more of a functionality course and I don't have much to work with so I'm trying to add interaction where I can.

Your example is great and helped me a lot; if I wanted to have the custom Next button (initial state down) change to normal when the slide reached the 3rd learning objective, would I put the trigger on the Next button or the slide?

And, what's the difference between the trigger being on the Next button or the slide?

See attached a revised example. I added a custom Next button that starts out as Disabled and is only enabled when the slider value is 3. When a trigger is attached to an object, e.g. the next button then only this object can cause the trigger to be executed, e.g. clicking a button. Slide triggers on the other hand can be 'fired' by any object on a slide. 

By the way, here are some examples of sliders.
