Improving Course Navigation User Experience [Part 1]: Establishing UX Patterns

Navigation is a broader term than what we understand by lesson navigation in LifterLMS with the Previous & Next Lesson links. The lesson navigation is but one of the ways students move around in the course.

Another way a user navigates a course is through the Mark Complete (or Take Quiz/ Assignment) button. A third way a student can navigate through the course is via the sidebar syllabus.

All these three user interfaces (UIs) provide their own type of navigation experience and in some aspects, act as redundancies of each other (that is, there are more than one way of accomplishing the same thing).

Student Behaviour

To understand the user experience (UX) of a student, let’s try creating a persona and describe their behaviour in a course context.
