St Thomas AB
Page-turners, cluttered slides, click Next to continue, and complex menus. These are all words and phrases that you’ll often hear when your users and colleagues discuss what’s frustrating about eLearning. If your users can’t easily navigate through your content or can’t find what they need exactly when they need it, that means they can miss some, or even all, of your important content. The good news is, you can calm that clutter and inconsistency with great UI design.
Throw away those overly cluttered menus and persistent Next buttons. In this session, you’ll reconstruct the face of UI design for your eLearning. You’ll find out how to reignite your passion for eLearning design through a new look at the design process. You’ll learn how to simplify the user experience of eLearning by optimizing the white space in your projects. You’ll then identify what makes great user interface design through critiquing before-and-after examples. Finally, you’ll take a look at the tools of the trade for UI design and learn how to find the perfect inspiration for your next project.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why reimagining UI design for eLearning will change your design process
- How to simplify and improve your users’ experience in eLearning
- How to make the best use of space in your designs
- Where you can find inspirational resources on UI design
