Learning design

Students' needs should be the keystone of each feature of the digital resource. Ensure that the way students are to interact with the resource to achieve the intended outcomes is made explicit.

Resource design

Learning design elements to consider while designing your resource include:

  • stimulating tasks that challenge students
  • collaborative work where appropriate
  • a mix of media
  • various delivery modes
    • web
    • mobile
  • independent and user-friendly navigation pathways
  • immediate responses to user actions
    • visual
    • auditory cues
  • opportunities for user experimentation, trial and error
  • consistent, clear icons and aesthetics that support the learning outcomes
  • compliance with technical standards
  • accessibility for a range of audiences.
