Showing learners their progress is a great way to help them feel motivated and empowered. That’s because progress indicators provide visual and immediate feedback to help learners know where they are in the course. And keeping learners on track with custom progress bars, meters, and gauges is what this week’s challenge is all about.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to show how custom progress trackers can be used in e-learning. Your example can be static or interactive but share your ideas for helping learners track their progress.
New Entries Only!
We hosted the first progress meters challenge more than seven years ago. Since then, course creators have shared dozens of examples and downloads in the community. Because progress bars are so popular, we’re asking that you only share new examples in this week’s challenge.
