Need Ideas on Labeling Slides that Branch Off
I need a little help with ideas on how to label slides that branch. Currently, we do "Slide # of #" (eg - slide 2 of 10) at the bottom of the screen. The problem with this is, many slides have branching scenarios or interactive buttons that take the user to "additional information." They are not linear. The users are also not required to click on every button, thus, they do not have to visit every single slide if they don't want to. The labeling is simply to show student progress so they know [roughly] how far into each module they are.
Leaving those 'sub-slides' blank is not an option, due to my boss's own feelings on the matter, but I think we can talk him into a better solution if we find one. A progress bar is one idea, but might get a little tricky with the branching & skipping of slides. A few other ideas have been tossed around, but I wanted to reach out to this community and see if anyone else has tackled this issue, or if you all have any fresh ideas on actions we could take.
I appreciate the help!
