eLearning Foundations Online Conference 2019 - December 12, 2019

Sean Pyle

Instructional Designer

Often, learning designers and developers aren't experts in user experience design (UXD). Unfortunately, sometimes this can lead to your learners thinking less about the content itself and more about the eLearning's usability issues. To avoid this, it's helpful to draw upon the field of UXD to improve your audience's experience in the eLearning you create.

Based on Steve Krug's book, Don't Make Me Think, and various other user experience design resources, this session will help you explore a user experience guide applicable to learning design. You'll review the guide and learn how to implement simple design solutions for improved user experience and learning outcomes.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to eliminate mental chatter from your content
  • How to make a clear and consistent course navigation
  • Reasons why you should do usability testing for your trainings
  • How to design things for how they will be used
