Often, during the development of an eLearning course, we hear the term Graphical User Interface (GUI). But, what is a GUI? Why is it important in the development of an eLearning course?
The main purpose of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) in an eLearning course is to enable learners to navigate through the course in a hassle-free manner. It tells them where they are in the course i.e., how much they have completed and how much they should complete. A typical GUI has buttons, such as Play, Pause, Replay, Previous, Next, Glossary, Resources, Audio on/off, Exit etc., which enable the learner to navigate easily through the course.
Here is an info-graphic which shares 9 examples of learner friendly GUIs.
Hope you find this post interesting. How do you design the GUIs of your online courses? We’d love to know.
