The virtual learning environment is heavily focused on the visual (the way most learners best take-in information) and the auditory (the way learners are least able to take-in information). Given this dichotomy, the instructional design process must be adapted to ensure that learners come away with concrete learning outcomes not simply "information".
This session will focus solely on the correct use of visual elements of the virtual learning environment, to ensure an active, collaborative and engaging learning process - which, in turn, maximizes learning outcomes and on-the-job application.
In this session you will learn:
The importance of good visual design for the synchronous environment
How to maximize visual engagement
How to design slides that engage the learning process so that they are not just passive recipients of "information"
