When working through a course as a student I often find myself popping back out to the module screen to see my progress and where I am in the module. "Am I halfway through and should take a break?", or "Just two more pages and a quiz and I'm done, I'll push through."
So I created this graphic to place at the top of each page to show the student's location within the big picture of the module itself.
Colors show the types of items in the module and the transparent ones represent upcoming items while the bold blue ones are completed items. Again, just a Module - at - a - glance kind of view without leaving the content page. I created it in ppt and have attached it below for anyone that wants to take and play with it. Comments and feedback appreciated.
