"Top Design Trends Influencing eLearning"
Tracy Parish, Education Technology Specialist/Articulate Community Hero
Each day, you are exposed to various forms of media, marketing, and design all geared to grab your attention. Specific techniques are used in almost everything you interact with to draw you to the next item, scroll down, click here or there, and to make that purchase, watch that video, look at that picture. Adopting these techniques and implementing them into your eLearning designs can have a similar engaging impact on learners.
This session will interest anyone who is designing and developing instructional materials. It will help you understand the current trends in mainstream media and how you can utilize this appeal to improve your own design processes. Together, participants will explore and see how these design elements can and have been used in eLearning development.
In this session, you will learn:
- About top design elements that are trending through web, marketing, and graphic design media
- Why these elements are important to users and designers
- How you can incorporate these design trends into your own projects
- Where to find examples, inspiration, and resources to incorporate into your own designs
