To Auto Advance or Not?
Hello community! I need your help settling an internal conflict I have. Ha!
I can't decide if a learner would prefer to click Next to advance each slide or to have the slides automatically advance until action is required on their part. I'm working on several presentations that present opportunities to open a URL or to view lightboxes on certain slides. While some slides with narration/graphics only auto advance, slides that have links or lightboxes are set to advance by user. However, I feel like this mix in navigation causes some learners confusion. For example, the presentation is playing along and all of a sudden it stops and the learner isn't sure what to do until their eyes find the next button. But, with that said, I've always personally hated the mindless redundancy of clicking through each slide.
What should I do?!
