changes in levels of difficulty.

Guide and Faciliate Learning
The character TOM acts as the facilitator of the e-learning course. It is the learners
choice to involve TOM more or less throughout the learning process. The course has
been designed and developed to accommodate to learners needs:
Ethics / Social
Learning Theory Story telling
Wholistic Thinking Multiple Perspectives
What learners need (Sierra 2008)
The Visual Design
The panels have been designed one at a time to guide the learners throughout the course.
The layout of the design follows the same colour schemes. The reason for this is to create a continuing pattern
so that when learners are faced with a new activity their learning environment is not changed drastically. This
allows adaptation. The use of a white background on a busy layout allows for the learner to concentrate on the
main graphic or textual elements on the screen. The contrasting colours allow the learner to identify new
activities and modules throughout the course. The alignment of a side panel displaying all icons grouped
together, delivers an organised effect.
