Drag-and-Drop Examples in E-Learning #321

My partner helped me do some quick user testing before submitting my entry for this week's E-Learning Heroes Challenge.

And after just three seconds of testing, I saw at least 10 things I got WRONG about how a user would interpret my design. (Mostly that users DO NOT WANT TO READ, lol!)

That was a good reminder that we too often design for how we THINK users will react, rather than how they actually react.

To dive back into the challenges, I tried to commit no more than 3 hours to the build overall. I gave myself an entire week to do it! I worked on it about 15-20 minutes at a time.

I've mentioned before why I see extreme value in participating in these design challenges when you're new at e-learning development. Read this post I wrote about Articulate design challenges, and how they can help you:

  • Build your portfolio if you are a new designer

  • Get your work seen by other industry professionals and receive feedback from them in real-time

  • See how other developer/designers interpret content

  • Practice your design skills :)

Check out this speed build of the slides. Like the tunes? I love working to house music!

This week’s challenge asked course designers to show how drag-and-drop interactions can be used in e-learning. Check out my entry, and others from the community here: Drag and Drop Interactions in E-Learning

Tools used:

  • Articulate Storyline

  • Canva

  • Unsplash

  • Camtasia (for speed build clip)

Music curated by: DJ Aline Rocha

A new challenge starts tomorrow! So dive in if you're ready :)
