When developing eLearning or online courses, it is important to remember that you are not just “information dumping” on the learner. But what happens when learners need to be presented with information that isn’t so interaction-friendly?
I recently had to create an Corporate Compliance eLearning where some of the information just NEEDED to be displayed for employees to read because it was mandatory that all employees were presented with and acknowledge that they received certain compliance regulations.
But we can still do it in a way that involves the learner being an active participant somehow…right!??! Of course.
In this particular case, I wanted to take these bits of somewhat-legalese and chunk them into more concise, digestible bits–so I got creative with interactive tabs.
Tabs are a great way to highlight key points, number steps of a process, allow a learner to choose to explore more information, and make it interactive.
I created a little freebie with a blue theme for anyone who’s interested.

This is fantastic! I’ve been looking for something like this to use in my elementary library for things like “How to use the online catalog” and to give instructions for the Activity Centers I make as part of our “voice and choice” initiative.
Thanks for sharing this, Lauren!
