Better orientation thanks to highlighting of visited areas

This is how your learners can always keep track

Visualisation visit marker in Knowledgeworker Create

If you lose your way, you lose your motivation. This makes it all the more important for participants in digital training to keep constant track of the goals they have already achieved, which components have been successfully completed in their current online course, and which ones are still pending. Especially if your employees take online courses in sections at different times rather than in one session, they need to be able to find their personal starting point again quickly and without having to do a lengthy search for the place where they left off the last time. This means that both learners and companies save valuable time, which in turn makes learning more efficient. What’s more, having a good sense of orientation during the learning process has a motivating effect on learners and hence a positive impact on learning outcomes. After all, if you can clearly find your way—and this also applies to online learning—you can reach your destination easily and directly, without any detours.


New visited element highlighting feature

Efficiency-boosting. Motivating. Automatic.

This is where the new visited element highlighting feature within Knowledgeworker Create comes in. Colored highlighting automatically indicates which elements learners have already visited. In this way, they can quickly see which learning objects are still pending and which ones have already been completed.

Icon automation


As soon as a learning object has been successfully visited, the object’s color setting changes automatically. No further action is required from learners.

Icon individuality


Visited areas are automatically shown in lighter or darker shades, depending on the original color. You don’t need to do anything else. Alternatively, we can customize the color of the visited element highlighting for you. 

Icon storage

SCORM compliant

The highlighting of the visited areas is saved and is still visible when the online course is opened again. With SCORM 1.2 this information is saved at the section level, with SCORM 2004 and xAPI at the element level.

Frequently asked questions

Visited element highlighting works with all the interactive elements integrated in Knowledgeworker Create, including:
