Which Colors to Avoid in Web Design – Web Design Tips & Tricks

Which Colors to Avoid in Web Design – Web Design Tips & Tricks | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Colors are the heart of any advertisement that decides how successfully it will promote your brand, merchandise or services. The power of color schemes should not to be underestimated. If used creatively, even the simpliest colors can not only boost the ability to advertise but also improve the time a user spends on a website averagely.


However, choosing the wrong color schemes can be disastrous to say the least and can drown any product or service, regardless of how big it is or what it brings to the table. For example, some advertisers choose flashy colors to capture the attention of their target audience. Although they may succeed in getting the heads turn in their direction, the audience will lose interest in the long haul.


This eventually ends up damaging brand image and reputation of the business.In this article, we will cover which types of color schemes to avoid in online advertising. I’ve gathered a list of “NOT TOs” along with an alternative methods for you to try....

Google wants to introduce VR to a million British schoolchildren | #VirtualReality | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Google is convinced about the long-term of VR. The company is heavily pushing it through affordable hardware initiatives like Google Cardboard and Daydream. And now, Mountain View is bringing it to the classroom with the aim of introducing the concept to one million British schoolchildren.

In his first visit to the UK since landing the coveted role of Google CEO, Sundar Pichai has said that Mountain View will offer VR training and resources to teachers through its Google Expeditions program.

Google Project #Tango demonstrates how to buy WayFair furniture in #AugmentedReality #eCommerce #GoogleIO

Project Tango unleashes a new way for you to explore the world. With a few sensors and some computer vision software, your phone gets even smarter, and can start to see the world the way you do. Follow guided arrows to know which exit to take when you get off the subway, see how a sofa looks in your living room before you buy it, or watch zombies battle on your dining table. In this session, we explore the vision of Project Tango and how it will come to life with the launch of our first consumer phone, announced earlier this year.

A video from Google demonstrates how to drop virtual furniture in your home environment, make sure it fits in the room then buy it directly from the augmented reality scene. The eCommerce segment starts at 17m16s

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Augmented reality has the potential to revolutionize businesses much before Virtual Reality because it can so seamlessly add to your existing world. The video shows examples of an AR measuring tape that can also be used in an commerce setting. Other uses for AR in the business context, to review floor plans and planograms in retail settings, or help with repairs have been proposed in the past. Some Google glasses videos demonstrated some interesting use cases. It now looks like our mobile phone will in fact be carrying the necessary hardware to make AR a reality much sooner than anyone may have anticipated...

Thanks to the technology, this is strategy is easier and useful since we can study with other people through forums, debates, social Medias, etc… E-learning has some advantages such as no geographical barriers, meet new people, cultures, ideas and thoughts also collaboration is more evident in learning networks than in traditional networks. Some tips to make your e-learning more successful is being active in the process, understanding that contribute with information is important as receive all that information and being clear about the guidelines. E-learning Networks give you a lot of opportunities to increase your knowledge.

In my opinión this interesting tool contributes to create a good atmosphere where students can interact and share their knowledge and investigations with the whole class. Personally, I would like to use this tool in three different ways: 1) Create a feedback wall where students can post suggestions and express concerns anonymously. 2) Build a matching exercise on the wall and have students rearrange the photos and text to solve, and 3) Create a digital map and have students post their findings about new cultures. The main idea is to teach the topics using other alternatives in order to motivate students participation.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

With 50% of mobile users that have not downloaded an app in the previous month (http://fortune.com/2016/09/16/smartphone-users-apps/), the future of our interactions with our mobile devices will be concentrated - limited? - to a small number of high profile apps from the big names - Facebook, Google, Apple. How can companies compete? They will embed intelligent bots to listen and converse with their customers, employees and partners using intelligent bots. Soon you'll be ordering pizza by chatting with a dominos pizza bot or getting stock tips for an automated financial expert. Believe it.

5 Tips to Create a Cost-Effective Makerspace Quickly - EdTech Magazine

5 Tips to Create a Cost-Effective Makerspace Quickly - EdTech Magazine | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it
In the 2015 New Media Consortium Horizon Report, makerspaces were recognized as one the six most important educational technology developments.

“Makerspaces are increasingly being looked to as a method for engaging learners in creative, higher-order problem-solving through hands-on design, construction, and iteration,” the report says.

As Laura Fleming, a library media specialist from New Milford (Conn.) High School, said in the Spring 2016 issue of EdTech: Focus on K–12, a good makerspace is one that puts the learner first.

That being said, creating a makerspace that teaches students the skills to aid them in creative and technological futures doesn’t necessarily require renovations and a rollout of new tech.

Fleming’s space, for example, thrives on donations of old computers from her school’s IT department. Here are five other ways to create a makerspace now.

Danielarv's curator insight, September 16, 4:06 PM
This article provides 9 techniques which can help improve knowledge retention in eLearning course. The first technique is doing an audience research in which you know about learner preferences, goals, and preexisting knowledge. Subsequently, you need to incorporate optional self-assessments in order that online learners check their own progress. Next, you can provide to your learners a microlearning online library gathers all of your bite-size eLearning in one place so that online learners can get in, get out, and get back to business. Additionally, you can provide to learners, visual summaries such as graphics, mind maps and infographics due to the fact that the human brain remembers images more effectively than text. Furthermore, the use of games in eLearning course can significantly improve knowledge retention. Also, another technique is the spaced repetition which improves knowledge assimilation by preventing cognitive overload. One of the most important techniques is the creation of mobile learning content in which online learners will actively engage with the eLearning content. At the same time, learner-generated eLearning content is an important technique which gives online learners the chance to refresh their memory and actively recall the information. Finally, the use of online forums to facilitate the online collaboration process allows that learners improve long-term retention. These knowledge retention techniques allow that online learners achieve their learning goals.

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Snapchat is arguably the most popular social media app around. But if you’re one of those folks who’s downloaded it to your smartphone and you're still not quite sure what to do (and you don’t want to ask one of the teenagers you know), here’s a quick getting-started guide to show you the basics.

What is Snapchat?

One of the things that Snapchat is best known for is the ephemeral nature of the content - you take a photo or video and send it to a friend and they have a limited number of seconds (up to 10 seconds maximum) to view the content before it disappears.

Before you send your snap, you can mark it up with text, stickers, or special lenses that give your selfie a silly look (big cartoon eyes, puking rainbows… it sounds odd but quickly becomes strangely charming)....
