5 Ideas from Google Primer to Inspire Your Next Bite-Size Learning for Mobile

  1. 1. 5 IDEAS FROM GOOGLE PRIMER TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT BITE-SIZE LEARNING FOR MOBILE
  2. 2. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application Designing for m-learning Designing for mobiles is totally different from doing one for a desktop. It might be easy for you to develop a HTML 5 compatible UX for a desktop/laptop and use the same in a mobile version of the course. But the user experience design principles are not in your favor here. People’s behavior on mobile is extremely different from that on desktop. They’re spending lot more time on mobiles. Developing a common design for desktop and mobile doesn’t work.
  3. 3. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application Designing for m-learning: Apps are the key People are used to and prefer apps when it comes to reading content on mobile. Delivering content in new compelling ways is the key to success in mobile learning. • According to Statista, the number of app downloads currently is about 102,062 million • It is expected to reach 268,692 million by 2017
  4. 4. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application Elegant m-learning design: Meet Google Primer  In 2014, technology giant Google has launched a content delivering app for mobile Primer to teach mini-marketing lessons for startups  It includes topics such as mobile site design, programming buying, and search advertising  Apart from being helpful for the young startups, the app stood as a great example for UX design in terms of being learner friendly in the most efficient manner  We will extract 5 ideas from this elegant application that helps achieve mastery in the design of this ongoing trend
  5. 5. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application 1. Keep it Simple Keep it simple is the sutra that has taken many applications to the top of the charts and Primer is no exception. As you can see here, the GUI of Primer looks minimalistic and clean. Restrict your GUI colors to minimum and use simple icons as shown here. To begin with: If you’re developing a curriculum based course, begin your app with a modules list as the first screen. If it is a standalone course, list all the important topics covered in the course. Let the learner select the module/topic of his choice and proceed further. This gives a simple start to avoid overwhelming the learner. Material Design rules the day
  6. 6. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application 2. Limit the text per screen: Imagine Sticky Notes  The major transformation from a traditional e-learning to m-learning is the content presentation  You need to come out of your desktop based approach and design the content in a mobile-friendly manner  Primer talks to its users through short and simple phrases that are piled up similar to sticky notes on your desk  Remember that in m-learning, every word counts and hence say good bye to your lengthy sentences and paragraphs Every word counts
  7. 7. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application 3. Do not just Evaluate, Involve Primer presents a scenario to the learner before every assessment – A great way to begin, but again keep it relevant and SHORT Keeping in mind the size of the screen, ask questions that are to the point and limit the options to a maximum of 3 Providing a descriptive feedback and asking the learner to confirm he’s understood is an efficient strategy
  8. 8. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application 4. Facilitate Offline Learning  One of the best features of Primer is that it allows the learners to view the lessons offline  Remember that the learners will not be as flexible with using data on mobiles as they are with desktop/laptop  When we say learning on the go, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the learner needs to be connected to a network all the time  Allow the learner to view the course offline which encourages him to complete the course
  9. 9. * All the images used in this presentation are taken from the application 5. Don’t end it with a thank you Primer recommends social learning by encouraging the learners to share the lesson with anyone. This is a good approach when we have broad target audience and are not sure if it has reached them all It doesn’t end with a thank you like many other courses. After completing the course, the learner will be provided cheat sheet which helps him to recall the key takeaways and then a call to action section will be provided. This helps the learner to know how to proceed after completing the course
