eLearning professionals often have questions surrounding design strategies for learning materials. Many find themselves “guessing” about layout, composition, and typography. Yet better-designed eLearning courses yield stronger communication and focused visuals. Following the basic principles of design helps dictate communication to the audience.

Participants in this session will learn about good design by focusing on composition, the grid, images/video/animation, and type font. You’ll be able to see and comment on design examples as well as learn about design principles.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Basic design principles for better screen designs
  • Simple rubrics to use to evaluate your designs
  • Layout and composition concepts
