Progress bars keep learners on track by showing them how far they’ve gone in your course and how far they have left to go. As an e-learning developer, you have the opportunity to make your progress bars gorgeous, fun, and even instructive in their own right. A little attention to detail goes a long way in making the experience unique.

We’ve collected some of our favorite progress bar examples from the E-Learning Community to inspire your work. Enjoy!

  1. In this example, Tania Vercoelen uses text variables and a unique progress bar to make her quiz stand out.
  2. The progress bar in Richard Watson’s sports car trivia course inspires learners to perform better and race to the finish line.
