If you are faced with the challenge to develop an e-learning concept for your business, then, after or beside the setting of targets and the determination of the contents, there exists another essential point - the didactic design of e-learning content.
Didactic design is the systemic planning, development and evaluation of learning environments and learning materials.
To customize your learning environments for the purpose of media design, we recommend the following three tips:
1. User-friendly navigation
It is essential that the navigation in your e-learning project is user-friendly shaped. Your learner should always know where he stands, where he just comes from, what he is able to do here and how he can pass to the next or to the previous point.
2. Combination of media
Text alone often acts cluttered and is difficult to internalize, especially for visual people. Only sound or picture is no solution either, because many images don’t speak for themselves and need explanations. That is why it is very important in the design of e-learning content to combine various media. e.g. picture and sound, as in video-based e-learning, or images enriched with short texts.
3. Mobile friendliness
Since many learners nowadays no longer learn only in front of their PC, but also on the way with their smartphone or tablets to bridge waiting times, it is especially important that your e-learning content works well on mobile devices. Many authoring tools provide this possibility.
