A common technique in e-learning is to require learners to click all items before they can move forward in the course. This happens for many reasons, from client requests to compliance reasons. However, whatever the reason, there are certain times or areas when you want to ensure the learner views all of the content before proceeding.

With tabs interactions, the process is straightforward. You just add visited states for each tab or button and then add a trigger to make something happen when all tabs are visited.

But what about accordion interactions? While they're similar to tabs interactions, accordion panels expand, collapse, and move all around the slide, requiring buttons and triggers on every slide layer.

The good news is if you know how to do it with tabs, you can do it with accordions. Let me show you how it works.

Some common reasons you'd want to require learners to click all items before continuing in the course:

  • Ensure learners read, watch, or interact with the content
  • Track completion for compliance or regulatory requirements
  • Slow down the pacing and nudge learners to reflect on the content
  • Prevent learners from rushing through the content
  • Prepare learners for what's coming in the next module
