Learners are empowered when they can track their progress through a course, and at Yukon Learning, we find this to be a popular concept in both our custom course development as well as our hands-on Articulate 360 training! Why don’t we explore this “as heard in training” question today: “What’s the Best Method for Tracking Progress?” We’ve talked about displaying course progress using a slider and variables in the blog post, “How Can I Use a Slider as Progress Meter?” We enjoy and recommend that method for e-Learning developed in
This question was sent to me just this month after a training session.

Well, if you’ve been to one of our classes, you’ll know a common theme is “There’s never any one way to do something in Storyline.” The same goes for this feature. While there are numerous possibilities, let’s take a look at three common uses of lightboxes. 1.
