Storyline 1 Player. SIDEBAR or Not to Sidebar

I'm new to Storyline and I want a mobile friendly course (but also PC/Mac friendly). I've made some layout templates - before I dive in - however, I'm not sure whether I ought to include the Sidebar with the Menu, Glossary and Notes or just not to bother at all? Will I need them? Most examples I've seen do not include them. My concern is that if I do use the Sidebar this will significantly affect the screen real-estate on mobile/cellphones. If I exclude them where do I put the content?

I can't seem to find the post with the attached Storyline file, because I would give the credit to the person who built this, but this might be something to look into. You can eliminate the sidebar all together and use a slider for the information if they need it. 

Hope this helps.

AAhhhhh! Another failed attempt to try and help someone. 

Ok, basically just kill the sidebar and create your own icons with triggers. You can then put  them anywhere on the layout that you like. The triggers will slide the information out from one of the sides. I hope that explains it and this helps.
