What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials | Digital design | Scoop.it
IntroductionA major premise of this report is that access to the curriculum for students with low-incidence disabilities is greatly enhanced by universal design. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a particular framework that applies to education. More specifically, UDL is an approach that can guide curriculum reform. A universally-designed curriculum includes multiple means of representation (to allow various ways of acquiring information and knowledge), multiple means of expression (to allow alternatives for demonstrating knowledge), and multiple means of engagement (to challenge appropriately, to motivate, and to allow learners to express and participate in their interests). A number of current contrasting approaches to universal design will be described. We conclude with an explanation of UDL. This will allow the reader to keep UDL in mind while progressing through subsequent sections until UDL solutions for curriculum access are more closely examined in our conclusion.

Animation Principles in UI Design: Understanding Easing

Animation Principles in UI Design: Understanding Easing | Digital design | Scoop.it
Well, this article is about easing, so that’s obviously the answer, but to understand what’s really going on here, we need to look deeper into the fundamentals of animation. We’ll take this step by step — we’ll learn the underlying concepts, explore ease-in and ease-out, break down easing curves and finally see how it all applies to UI Design.

User Experience - UX Design - What Matters To Interaction Design Professionals

User Experience - UX Design - What Matters To Interaction Design Professionals | Digital design | Scoop.it
Six Ways to Make People Like You[r Site]“Become genuinely interested in other people.” There’s no faking it. Rushed usability testing or ignoring the data will show. People infer our thoughts by our actions.“Smile.” Facebook, Flickr, and other such social software express a light tone in their visual design and content. Lighten up, business need not be impersonal.“Remember that a man’s Name is to him the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” Personalization has come a long way, but has a long way to go before it nears human capacities.“Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.” Encourage user-generated content. Providing commenting is good, responding to comments usefully is great.“Talk in the terms of the other man’s interest.” Know what their interest really is, so to speak to it.“Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely.” Evolve authenticity by continually improving.Twelve Ways to Win People to Your Way of [Interacting]“Avoid arguments.” Avoid errors.“Show respect for the other person’s opinions. Never tell someone they are wrong.” Error or warn as politely as possible, when necessary.“If you’re wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically.” Good design, and good business, co-evolves with user’s feedback.“Begin in a friendly way.” Don’t present an arduous registration form, or any other type. Reducing task time and effort shows empathy.“Start with questions the other person will answer yes to.” Know your users motives.“Let the other person do the talking.” Don’t tell people how to use it (i.e: “click here”, “press Submit”). Show them. If they can’t express their intentions without instructional text, its time for a redesign.“Let the other person feel the idea is his/hers.” Discovery can be a joy. Make it easy.“Try honestly to see things from the other person’s point of view.” Labeling “My Account” rings truer than “Your Account.”“Sympathize with the other person.” Most interactions are, in fact, impositions. Dis-impose them.“Appeal to noble motives.” Design for enjoyment, not just efficiency.“Dramatize your ideas.” Interaction form a story. Make them a compelling one.“Throw down a challenge.” Users are not designers. Designers lead use and can extend the user’s intentions down new paths.Technologies may be new, but we, the people, are largely unchanged. Software should, of course, support, and not hinder us. But how often does it? You might say interaction design is a profession that should not be. It should be that everyone knows how to “make people like you,” and “win people to your way of thinking” via interactive systems. But, for better or worse, our jobs seem safe for now: the qualities that make interactions work for and not against us are by no means ubiquitous in our society, businesses, or other organizations. So as ever, if we want to improve the world, we start it not there, but in ourselves. And follow not the golden rule, but the platinum one: Treat others how they want to be treated. - See more at: http://uxdesign.com/ux-theory/article/how-to-win-users-and-influence-them/46#sthash.GoTDel8D.dpuf

OK - this might be great, but we have many color blind students.

Mary Starry's curator insight, June 14, 2014 9:11 AM

I don't see color used very often on pharmacy webpages or handouts. Maybe we consider our subject matter as too serious to incorporate color.  However, color can help with learning. A key point here is to use bold, not bright!

30 Brilliant 404 Error Page Designs & Why That's Important | Creative Bloq

30 Brilliant 404 Error Page Designs & Why That's Important | Creative Bloq | Digital design | Scoop.it
The 404 page is a standard response code in HTTP telling the user, in effect, that they've clicked on a broken link. Marty NoteWhen I was Director of Ecommerce we had a period where our 404 (not found) page was shown so often it got indexed in Google. You don't want that (lol), but you DO want your 404 page to create a sense of missed opportunity. Your "not found" page needs to create a sense of easy correction and reassurance. Your site (and by extension YOU) are for real. The 404 page that provides a sense of stability, missed opportunity and a clear path to correction can win back what might otherwise be a lost customer. One way a website creates trust is to manage everything with a sense of commitment and quality. When our 404 page was showing up so much it got ranked I made sure to apologize and share a special offer code. There was a period when that offer was our most popular redemption (again NOT GOOD lol). A visitor might "fish" your site typing a nonsense sequence to see what you offer. My thought was always HAVE AT IT (lol). For the honest traveler who ends up seeing your 404 (especially if YOU are at fault) having a great design and a promotion code can safe the day.
