Keynote: LX Design: From IDEAS to ACTION Do instructional designers design instruction? Or are we designing robust learning experiences? Learner Experience Design is a fundamental shift in thinking about the design of online courses and programs. Explore the IDEAS behind LX Design and why they are critical to our future success as designers.
Have you seen online courses that don't take the user experience (UX) into account? Do they have too much text? Are they missing introductions? Do they lack reading guides or guiding questions? Have you seen bad alignment, incorrect color use, irrelevant images, or even no visual interest? Or is the font too small? Or worse is there inconsistent weekly organization or boring narration? Using LX Design principles participants will complete a redesign project.
Design Learning Experiences not Instruction Student Centered Learning Design Thinking Persona Development UX really MATTERS!
A good product should be just like a cinematic masterpiece: First there’s the opening introduction (user onboarding) — the opening hook that draws you in; the user interacts with a lovely animation or a delightfully simple interface or even a free chest of gems. Then there’s the plot itself (the product experience), where the protagonist deals with whatever turning points or discoveries come their way — the user finds an item they’d like to purchase — maybe its out of stock — maybe they add it to their cart and proceed to checkout. Then there’s the climax (the feedback rush) — the protagonist saves the day or gets what they want — the user purchases the pair of boots in their cart. And finally, there’s the resolution — the protagonist gets married or walks off into the sunset. In product terms — this is the essential User Offboarding moment — it’s what happens when the purchase is completed — when the message has been sent — when the article has been liked and shared. As designers strive to create more holistic start-to-finish, cinematic experiences, we will begin to spend much more time curating these final off-boarding “sunset” moments.
