Different Types of Menu Styles in E-learning Courses

In an eLearning course,the menu provides the gist of the course to the learners. It gives them a brief idea about the topics that will be covered in a particular chapter. Here, I would like to share with you the different types of menu styles that can be used in your eLearning courses.

There are different types of menu styles that can be created using eLearning course authoring tools. Let us see some menu styles that can be created using FLash and Lectora.

1. Created using Flash

Menu Type – I

In the Flash, we can customize the menu through scripting. Shown below is an example of a menu structure that is developed using Flash. If the learner clicks on the menu button it will pop up a window from bottom and on clicking the menu button again it is hiddenThis type of menu structure can be used when we have to show more content on screen.

Menu Type - I

Menu Type – II

Below is the screen shot of another menu style created using Flash. In this type of menu structure, we can show the tick marks after completion of each unit. Upon clicking the menu button, a window will open from the left side. This type of menu will help the learner to know his/her course progress, i.e. how much is completed and how much isn’t.

Menu Type – II

2. Lectora:

Menu Type – I

Lectora is another tool that allows us to customize the menu . Below is the screen shot of menu structure developed using Lectora. Its almost similar to the one we have seen in Flash, but here we cannot hide the menu.

Menu Type – I

Menu Type – II

Below is the other example of menu pattern we can develop using Lectora. If the learner clicks on a course menu button, it gets activated and shows up as a separate window in the course. This Is very useful, especially when we have to include large amounts of content in the menu.

Menu Type – II

I hope you find this blog on menu structures in Flash and Lectora informative. Do share your views.
