What are other institutions using in place of tabs and accordions to chunk and display content in their courses?
Hello, Leigh Tedesco Welcome to the Canvas Community! This is a great topic for discussion. We've got a lot of information about how to design and present content in the Instructional Designers group, so I've shared this with them. You won't need to join the group to see their responses appear here, but if you'd like to join the group so you can participate in it, you can easily do so by clicking on the link to the group and selecting Join Group from the Actions menu that appears at the upper right of the group home page.
In addition, since chunking content goes hand-in-hand with mobile mindfulness, I thought you might enjoy the resources that appear in the comments section of Canvas Mobile Design (and you'll find a link to the event recording there as well).
Last, since this prompt isn't likely to elicit a single uniquely correct response, I've flipped the format to an open-ended discussion.
I look forward to hearing design ideas!
For what it's worth, I've found that even though accordions no longer work without the update to the Javascipt script code described in the June release notes, tabs are still working.
That is accurate. We utilize tabs heavily in our courses and we have had no issues thus far.
Another tool that is still working fine Leigh is the element.toggler class. See the Style Guide for the required html.
Since I was investigating this today, and first came upon this discussion, I thought I'd add here a pointer to the Community discussion that I ultimately found most thorough and helpful in discussing possibilities:
