109 Applying Web Design and Usability Standards to eLearning

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, November 16



How do eLearning developers ensure that trainings are well designed graphically? There are many resources out there for web design standards, such as the Nielsen Norman Group and the World Wide Web Consortium, but what about eLearning design? Sure, there are plenty of resources for free templates and character packs, but that doesn’t really help developers learn how to properly design online training.

Good news! You can apply many interaction design principles for interface design and web design best practices to your eLearning content. In this session, you will learn the benefits of implementing graphic design techniques and the key usability standards that directly apply to eLearning design by exploring realistic “do and don’t” examples for each. What you gain from this session, you can take back and immediately apply to support and enhance your content.

  • About key usability standards
