  5. Using Carousel the Right Way

A carousel is a UX component that delivers content in a slideshow-like style. Carousels can be set to “autoplay” or manually navigated by users. They are most commonly used on homepages to showcase images, products, and promotions.

Best Practices:

  • Load content using HTML
  • Optimize content
  • Use modern technology

Carousels should help you achieve your business goals by presenting information in an easy-to-navigate and read format.

Navigation Best Practices:

  • Offer visible navigation controls
  • Support mobile gestures

If you must include a carousel, make sure the information is prioritized and that each slide is important enough for a user to want to go on to the next.
