enter image description hereIn my app I can access a gallery (1) and, after selecting one of the items, I can perform an exercise ( 2- MODAL). It is a training app and in the modal I am going to choose what I think is the correct answer to the previously chosen item, which is merely a preview of the exercise itself shown in the modal.

When I am in the modal, I was wondering if I can facilitate navigation by allowing the user, in addition to the 'next' in the upper right corner that would bring to item 11, to select a specific item/exercise by adding a collapsible section (3) by tapping the arrow indicator next to '10' in the nav bar. I could access the same gallery as screen (1) and choose a specific item from there instead of clicking next an stick to the order I am given of closing down the modal to choose something more specific.

Is this any good or am I just messing things up?enter image description here

More context and additional info here. The total number of exercises are about 50. These exercises are logic stuff, provided by an institution. It doesn't matter if I already performed them, they're part of a training and may be randomly picked up when the user takes the final exam. The goal here is to solve them over and over or insist on specific ones if I don't remember the logic behind and need to refresh things up. The preview in the gallery is a preview of the exercise itself, so with a glance I can select what I need. When you click verify, you may want to re-tap it to see the solution once again (it may be called play instead of verify).You choose what to do next then, if closing down the modal after just one exercise, pick up a specific one by tapping on the arrow indicator, or simply tap 'next'. Completion in a sequence is NOT a requirement they can skip exercises and nothing would happen. Is the arrow indicator a good thing? Or it adds nothing?

This app sounds similar like a deck of Flash Cards, or Quiz cards.

With flash cards, the goal is often to work one card after another, keeping the user in a focussed state. They do a burst of exercises, then take a break. It's similar to a sprint.

Having Next and Prev links will save them from having to hop back and forth from gallery to detail.

If you give them a close link, they can always go back to the list.

Keep in-card navigation simple.

You mentioned having a dropdown to go to a specific card. Are you basically replicating the cards list in a sliding drawer? That could get unwieldy, and the user is then focussing more on navigation than rapid acquisition of knowledge.

In that case, they can just close the current card and pick from the list, which you said has a preview of the exercise itself.

  • So is this similar to flash cards that repetitive use will allow them to get better and better? – Mike M Aug 20 '17 at 12:34
  • I don't know what you mean by flash card, but yes the goal here is to get better and better until you master the logic behind. Later in your training path you may want to refresh things up and choose specific exercise just to see if you're in good shape for your exam. – Antonella Aug 20 '17 at 12:38
  • I see; I'm editing my answer now, with a link to flash cards definition. – Mike M Aug 20 '17 at 12:40
  • I am going to add 'prev' and 'next' and take off the list next to the exercise number. Sounds great to me. Of course with a close link, so they can go back to the list. Thanks for valuable input. – Antonella Aug 20 '17 at 13:04
