P09 A Practical Guide to Creating Amazing Experiences
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Tuesday, April 19
With great opportunity comes great responsibility to create learner-friendly experiences that drive engagement and behavior change with measurements that matter. But with technology constantly changing, no one has time to become a master of any craft—not the designer or developer, and not your large audience of learners. Specific skills and tools you might learn in college, a certificate program, or a workshop will be different or obsolete within one year, if not sooner. So how do we develop a process to ensure delivery of solutions that are iterative and sustainable; solutions that will evolve to remain relevant throughout the lifecycles of unique audiences?
This hands-on workshop delves into our 4 D process, which includes: Define, or knowing your audience before you design anything; Design, in which form follows function; Develop, where you work out your ideas; and Deliver, where you implement learning experiences that will delight your audience. We will spend significant time on each topic as we guide you through the process of creating an outline or template to use on your upcoming initiatives.
In this session, you will learn:
- Research foundations
- How to clarify business needs
- The elements of design
- Wireframing and prototyping
- Sources for design inspiration to make design work easier
- How to evaluate real world examples to fast track your own design projects
