Nicole Legault

Community Manager

Have you ever reached a slide in an eLearning course where you were unsure what to do, or where to click? If so, you were the victim of bad navigation design—a common eLearning problem. One of the most challenging aspects of eLearning development can be designing clear and cohesive navigation that is easy for learners to follow, and that doesn’t lead to dead-ends.

In this session you will learn tips and best practices for designing user-friendly navigation in your eLearning that ensures users never have to guess about where to go, and can focus on the content. You will learn great ways to test your navigation and find out if it really works or not. You will learn the importance of incorporating a clear exit from your course, and how to create one.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How and when to add navigation instructions
  • Tips for designing consistent course navigation
  • Best practices for incorporating a clear exit from your course
  • How and why to thoroughly test your navigation

Novice and intermediate designers, developers, and project managers with basic eLearning knowledge.
