Accordion interactions are simple to use and stunningly versatile. Like their popular sibling, the tabs interaction, designers use the accordion interaction to chunk out long content. You can fit l-o-o-o-ng text blocks comfortably onto a single slide, or reveal pieces of a process progressively for your learners. While the basic design is pretty straightforward, there’s lots of room for creative flourish.
