Why doesn't Articulate Storyline offer course progress bars rather than a slide progress bar?
I would like to request an enhancement for the next player upgrade in Articulate Storyline. Could a variety of course progress bars be offered as a selectable option in the player?
I realize that many users (programmer/developers) might really enjoy the programming freedom and creativity AS2 allows around this. However, for those of us who are instructional designers using AS2 as a tool to create elearning modules, having to search for and/or then program in a course progress bar is exquisitely time-consuming. For me, a course progress bar should a price of admission function for any courseware authoring software.
And really, what good is a slide progress bar anyway? It seems to me like a waste of space that could be better used to give our learners a realistic, easy-to-parse, consistent way of knowing where they are in the course. And why is the Play/Pause button connected to a slide progress bar?
Please pardon my rant, but I have spent many frustrating hours on this.
