209 Responsive eLearning Design and How to Truly Achieve it
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, October 24
St. Thomas A
There’s a common myth that responsive design means shrinking to fit. It doesn’t! And that’s only the start of the misconceptions then applied to eLearning. The truth is, many designers have several courses that aren’t responsive or are merely paying lip service to being so. You need to start converting them now, otherwise you’re frustrating a huge group of your learners. But where do you start?
In this session, you’ll learn what responsive eLearning is, what it looks and feels like, and how to truly achieve it. You’ll walk through a complete step-by-step guide of: things you need to consider; what you need to prepare; best practice media creation; authoring tools you could use; and how you should test your courses. You’ll explore the differences between creating courses from scratch versus converting existing courses, but you’ll leave with a checklist that can be applied to both instances.
In this session, you will learn:
- What responsive eLearning is, and why it’s essential to accommodate it
- What the key points are for creating a responsive eLearning course
- How to prepare media so that it’s best fit for a responsive course
- What the main considerations are when converting existing eLearning content to a responsive platform
- Which common responsive design mistakes you should avoid
- What you need to evaluate when choosing a responsive authoring tool
Designers, developers, and managers.

Evolve will be demonstrated, and other HTML5 responsive authoring tools will be discussed.
