Designing UI/UX? Great resource for discovering dos and don’ts

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 09.26.10When it comes to creating e-learning I’ve designed many a UI/UX. Occasionally I’ve designed something that I thought was ‘great’ and ‘obvious’ only to have pilot user feedback that it was ‘confusing’. A bit of time on the app teardowns at UserOnboarding has helped me think through the options and avoid some pitfalls.

Interesting use of long scroll for storytelling

The story is told using long scroll to tell the story featuring photos, interviews, and video.

Great example of user driven learning content.

World Wide Web. A neat animated explainer

A recent TED-Ed animated lecture, based on a lesson by educator Twila Camp, explains what exactly the World Wide Web is, how it is different from the Internet, and the difference between WWW and Internet. A sweet and simple animation.

A few simple things, teamwork, and lots of practice

Thanks for sharing Tom.

Neat new (and free) ebook from the eLearning Network


For the past four years, the eLearning Network has asked members to submit their tips in the run up to Christmas. These appear on the ELN Insights blog. Now Mark and Sarah Berthelemey have reviewed the last four year’s worth of material, and pulled together the most useful of them into a freely-downloadable ebook: Elearning tips from the pros

Thank you Mark and Sarah and all the experts who have kindly given their time, and knowledge for our benefit.
