There has been a rise of interest in design-based development over the last several years, supported by a succession of significant improvements in flexible eLearning approaches.
FREMONT, CA: One of the most noticeable trends is an increased emphasis on appearance. Instructional designers focus on developing more engaging content that incorporates more graphics and videos, which helps learners retain more knowledge and increases participation with the course content.
The presentation has been highlighted because it adds an element of engagement that transforms static pages with boring text into entertaining lessons that keep learners engaged. After all, a compelling presentation is critical to engage an audience!
The following are some of the most critical factors to consider while presenting and delivering training content:
Mixed media material combines text with graphs, charts, photos, and videos to assist learners in visualizing concepts and connecting various points in the text.
While not everyone is a visual learner—a critical distinction to make to optimize the learning process—the great majority of us are. These learners benefit from the information provided graphically (rather than verbally) to visually support learning objectives and provide context for a concept or idea without requiring extensive reading or text-based training.
Multimedia projects now provide an immersive experience that allows users to explore various ways, including geographical, auditory, and 3D. Each of these factors contributes to the creation of an immersive environment conducive to multitasking and material interaction. For instance, users can click on real-world locations to be transported there or view three-dimensional objects generated in real-time.
A greater emphasis on accessibility
It is critical to ensure that all content is available to all users. This includes making the user’s site compatible with screen readers, limiting navigating to the keyboard, and providing subtitles for video clips so that deaf users can follow along as well.
Compatibility with mobile devices
With the number of mobile users accessing online material expanding rapidly, instructional designers no longer have the luxury of producing content without considering mobile needs. This translates into smaller text sizes that are more suitable to screen size, offline reading capabilities, and voice-over choices that allow users to continue accessing their information even when service or Wi-Fi are unavailable.
