Using Scrolling Panels to Manage Content in E-Learning #386

Scrolling Panels in E-Learning #415: Challenge | Recap

When working with lengthy text blocks in your course design, you can do a few things to ensure the composition is manageable and easy to read:

  1. Break up the text into smaller paragraphs. 
  2. Use typographic hierarchy to ensure the most important information stands out.
  3. Use whitespace to create visual interest and balance. 

But there may be times when you still may need a little extra help. That's where scrolling panels can help.

Scrolling panels are a great option when you're looking for ways to present large images, lengthy text blocks, or other graphics that don't fit well on a slide.

For example, you can divide a long list or set of instructions into manageable chunks by placing each piece of content in its own text box within the scrolling panel. And managing large blocks of content is what this week's challenge is all about.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an example to show how scrolling panels can be used to present content that doesn't fit well on the slide.
