- [Chris] Hi, my name is Chris Converse and welcome to Creating Expandable Panels with jQuery. There are many occasions where you'll want to include a large amount of content on a webpage, especially for search-ability. However, you don't want to inundate the user with such large amounts of content. A collapsible panel gives your users the opportunity to expand content they're interested in without interrupting their user experience by changing the page or directing the browser to a different location. This type of non-linear user experience can be very helpful for contents such as frequently asked questions, reading corporate biographies, and I'm sure you've seen this technique on social media sites for expanding interesting conversations.
