101 A Crash Course in Visual Design
8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, June 7
Did you know that the visual design of eLearning, slides, and other instructional materials can have a big impact on learner success? Well-designed materials can motivate learners, improve comprehension, and assist retention.
In this session, you’ll learn about the powerful principles that will have the biggest impact on your designs. You’ll look into ways that you can apply each principle for maximum success. The goal is to quickly increase your visual design skills as much as possible in one hour—and you’ll be surprised at how much you can improve! You don’t need to draw well to improve your visual design skills; you just need to learn the foundational principles and apply them.
In this session, you will learn:
Why aesthetics are important to learning
- How to work with shapes, images, and fonts to communicate the right message to your audience
- Tips for laying out a slide or screen so that your designs look professional
- How to pair fonts
- How to ensure learners quickly see what is most important
