Mobile learning is about more than technology. Too often organizations simply move bad practice to new technology. Before we step forward and look at the next best-technology or coolest new gadget in our field we need to step back to basics and consider our design. Before organizations can make the move to mobile, they need to ensure they have strong visual-design practices that work for myriad devices and audiences.

In this session you will explore the key elements of the principles of visual design. You will learn the language of design so that you can better articulate your vision. You will learn the questions you must ask when making design choices and discover the key points to remember about mobile-screen real estate and how that relates to visual design. You will leave this session with a number of actionable visual-design tips that you can use for mobile development.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The elements and principles of design
  • Why design is about making choices
  • The primary goals of responsive design
  • How to negotiate screen real estate

Novice and intermediate designers and developers.
