405 Unlocking the Potential of Responsive Design
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Tuesday, March 27
Despite technology promises, developing content that is meaningful, accessible, and maintainable in a world of multiple devices and varied platforms remains a huge challenge. Responsive design still holds the key, but to unlock its real power, instructional designers need to differentiate between “true” responsive and many of the “pseudo-responsive” approaches in use today.
To be successful in a multi-device world, instructional designers need to let go of the control they’ve gotten used to with “slide-based” learning and embrace the idea that web-based learning doesn’t have to be so constrained. This session will provide participants with a thorough understanding of the principles of responsive design and how to apply them to any type of learning, from traditional courses to knowledge bases and job aids. Recognizing the difference between true responsive design and other approaches equips designers with the knowledge they need to make more effective training that is easier to develop and maintain.
In this session, you will learn:
- About the benefits of responsive design as applied to learning development
- About the differences between true responsive design and other responsive design approaches
- Two simple but powerful metaphors to help you understand and apply true responsive design principles to all your learning development projects
- How true responsive design can benefit multiple types of learning development projects—from more traditional courses to other types of vehicles such as knowledge bases and job aids
Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
