Designing the e-Learning User Interface
Source: San Francisco State University
With the demand for Distance Education (DE) steadily growing and the ongoing struggle to convince the skeptics of the potential of e-learning and online virtual classrooms, quality design is the foundation for a successful DE program. The design of the instruction and the design of the user interface are critical elements in providing quality education with a virtual, e-learning model. This White Paper will focus on the design of the e-learning User Interface (UI). What are the principles of effective user interface design? What elements are necessary to create a powerful user experience? What is the future of the design of e-learning user interfaces? This White Paper will answer these questions and provide examples of properly executed user interface design principles.
