  1. To measure engagement: Tracking slide visits allows e-learning designers to measure how engaged learners are with the material, and to identify which slides are getting the most attention.
  2. To identify problem areas: By tracking slide visits, e-learning developers can identify which slides are causing confusion or difficulty for learners, and address those issues.
  3. To personalize instruction: By tracking slide visits, e-learning learning experience designers can personalize instruction for each learner, by providing additional resources or support for the areas where they need the most help.
  4. To improve course design: By tracking slide visits, e-learning designers can improve the design of their courses, by identifying which slides are most effective and which need to be revised.
  5. To measure progress: By tracking slide visits, training managers can measure student progress over time and monitor the effectiveness of their instruction.

It takes just one Storyline trigger to set up user flow analytics, and you will have access to this valuable data that will allow you to not only gauge course performance, but also identify problem areas and improve course design.
