410 Designing with Animation

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, November 17

Instructional Design


Animation is a powerful tool for creating engaging eLearning experiences. Sadly, many animations are used without purpose as just a design embellishment. When that happens, the animation distracts the learner from the content rather than helping to elevate it.

This session will explore how animation can be used with purpose to create meaningful and appealing eLearning experiences. Demonstrating multiple before-and-after examples, the session will show how animation can explain complex ideas and create valuable learning content.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How animation affects the learning process
  • How to use animation with purpose to bring meaning to learning content
  • About the various types of animations used within eLearning
  • How to explain complex ideas and processes through animation

Novice and intermediate designers and developers.
