According to Edward Tufte (a pioneer in the field of data visualization), “Graphical excellence is that which gives to the viewer the greatest number of ideas in the shortest time with the least ink in the smallest space”. In this context, to make an e-learning course visually rich and learner-centric, developing a visual strategy is essential along with the instructional strategy that creates a real learning experience. Visual strategy plays a vital role in e-learning development as it reduces development time by paving the way for standardization.
It is well-known that effective visual design goes a long way in enhancing the effectiveness of an online web-based training course. Besides good visuals, you also need to use the appropriate color theme and make the best use of screen elements to engage learners efficiently.
So, how do you use different elements of a screen while designing an eLearning course? How do you use the Graphical User Interface (GUI), audio script, and the on-screen content area to motivate your learners to complete the course? Well, take a look at the infographic below to know how to come up with a winning visual design strategy.
