How To Improve eLearning Course Design Usability By Adopting The 10 Usability Heuristics

How To Improve eLearning Course Design Usability By Adopting The 10 Usability Heuristics | Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Asynchronous eLearning is different from traditional classroom studying and requires strong motivation and self-discipline from learners. As there is no person-to-person contact and immediate reaction to problems emerging in the process of learning, eLearning professionals should pay special attention to eLearning course navigation and usability. To help you remove all the barriers to effective eLearning course design the article provides an idea of what eLearning usability is and how to improve it by applying common usability heuristics.

This article is very timely, as I have been working on a logo design for http://PhilosBooks.com, which will be shown on the website very soon. Please let me know what you think once you take a look at it!

 

As an author, you are a brand whether you like that fact or not. If you have a logo that pops, and every time people see it, they will think of you, you are ahead of the game. Make sure it is relevant, eye-catching, and brands you and your books. You can then place that logo on every single one of your book covers.

Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking

Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking | Instructional Design | Scoop.it

"Design Thinking is a great skill for students to acquire as part of their education.  But it is one process like the problem-solving model or the scientific method. As a step-by-step process, it becomes type of box.  Sometimes we need to go beyond that box; step outside of the box. This post provides an overview of design thinking, the problems with design thinking, and suggestions to hacking the world to go beyond design thinking."

This website is helpful to give teachers some stepping stones and guidance as to where to go with design and technology.

Proof Of The Power Of Content Marketing

Proof Of The Power Of Content Marketing | Instructional Design | Scoop.it

Lindsey LaManna of SAP gives us a good infographic that neatly captures the KPIs for her content marketing.

 

"This site has already received 347,709 unique visitors, 395,478 visits and 574,676 page views since its launch just seven months ago.

 

"Visitors are engaging with the content, which is created by both SAP employees and external authors, and spending almost five minutes every visit.

 

"Even more impressive is the statistic that 29% of visitors come to the site from organic sources and 6% come from social sharing."

 

What I like is how simply the infographic tells the story in numbers.  Reach, Engagment and Conversion. The KPIs and supporting metrics. What it doesn't tell is what is happening at micro level (article by article) or how things are changing over time. But for now, this is good.
