Process interactions present your e-learning content in a way that’s easier for learners to digest. Chunking each of the instructions into steps gives learners more control over their experience so they can focus their attention on the information you’re providing.
We’ve collected four examples that illustrate process interactions using four different approaches: buttons, drag-and-drop, tabs, and click-and-reveal. Check them out below:
- Use buttons and tabs to explore this video tour by Dan Sweigert that demonstrates and describes the steps for tuning a kalimba.
- Drag and drop items on the fire in the correct order to avoid summoning an angry bear in this playful and informative example by Dana Kocalis.
- Want to explain a complex process without overwhelming your readers? Break it up into manageable steps to let learners progress at their own pace with this tabbed real estate–themed freebie from Nicole Legault.
- Lead learners through a process one step at a time and show their progress with this timeline-esque click-and-reveal template from Trina Rimmer.
