If you want to create an e-learning course for your business, it is important to pay attention to some relevant design principles. This will make your e-learning clearer, more user-friendly and also more appealing.
When designing an e-learning course particularly 3 points should be noted:
- Corporate design (CD)
Nearly every company has a clearly defined corporate design, which you should not ignore even when creating your e-learning. You should especially take care of fonts and colors or color schemes. You should never use more than 3 to a maximum of 5 colors in your e-learning course. If your company doesn’t have a defined color scheme, there are lots of tools available in the web, e.g. color.adobe.com.
- Less is more
To ensure a clarity and ease of use of your e-learning you should never place every content on one page or slide. It is recommended to divide the content accordingly so that each slide has enough white space. This white space and the division of the content helps your learners to deal with the essential content of the e-learning course.
- Uniform appearance
It is very important that your e-learning has a uniform appearance. You could ensure this by considering a template, which extends over the entire e-learning course. By doing this you can ensure that the motivation of your learners will be maintained throughout the whole course and that no disturbing elements will distract your learners from the essential content.
