With analytics showing that 92% of our learners are viewing courses on widescreen monitors, why is there no option to create Bridge courses in a landscape orientation? Certainly hoping that this will soon change.
Thanks for the question. From what I understand about your question, Bridge is mobile responsive. Meaning that it's designed to make the content automatically accessible depending on how they choose to consume it. That's the reason why there isn't a "portrait" or a "landscape" mode, because you only have to create content once and then Bridge adjusts it automatically to how the learner wants to consume.
Currently the widest dimensions that Bridge supports for desktop is 720px. Would wider dimensions for desktop consumption get to your problem?
The question does appear to have been brought up before, only described in a different way. There are in fact other users who are struggling with the limitations of the portrait orientation of bridge content slides. For example, using screen shots: The only solutions found in the community for dealing with the reduction in scale of landscape oriented graphics is to "zoom into and crop out" the image. Yet again, with 92% of learners viewing content on wide screen monitors, wouldn't it make sense to be able to create course content in a landscape (i.e. monitor screen) orientation? I'm sure there are many other users who would LOVE this functionality. Please let me know if or when this may become available. Thanks!
Thanks Ike. Yes, because no one on a laptop or desktop screen monitor has a resolution of 720px in width. The standard minimum these days is something like 1,366px and higher.
I would be really happy to see a Bridge content slide with a width of 1280px or 1,440px. ;-)
Based on Ike's comment, it sounds like there are hard width limits set. From what I've seen of Bridge, I would think it would be possible to use more of a responsive template rather than hard sets. This way it would simply adjust based on the device.
Though, I do realize there are more things to consider with this method.
