Slideshow is often used at the beginning or in the middle of a course to start a new section of activities. It's different from a standard slide because it shows your user a slider bar with the percentage of the slideshow they've completed and awards your user points and a badge on completion.
Here are some items to keep in mind when you're writing a Slideshow:
- Keep your paragraphs and sentences short and to the point
- Ensure a consistent tone and style
- Avoid additional jargon, buzzwords, or filler words
- Try to keep an active voice - write in the now or future, instead of the past
- Break up large blocks of text into smaller paragraphs for easier reading
You can choose Horizontal (Landscape) or Vertical (Portrait) Slideshow layout for your images.
Horizontal is best used for short snippets of information, while Vertical provides more space for additional text and bulleted lists.
For the best user experience, limit the number of pages to 6 or less.
Create your images @2x (e.g. 3840 by 2160) for a crisper image if there's text in the image.

The primary focus of the image should be within the safe zone to ensure the image works in most aspect ratios.
Why is my content getting cut off?
If you're using a long bulleted list, you may be within the character count, but it will break the layout at certain aspect ratios.
Can I add a link to my Slideshow content?
You can, but we strongly recommend against it, as it breaks the user's experience when they navigate outside the course/training to an external website.
