In her interview “Design: key elements to the learner’s motivation”, Elodie Primo talks about the importance of design in the field of Digital learning: the learning portal’s web design, ergonomics, and features are essential. This new “Design” trends shows that the learning portal goes beyond the training frame to become an extension to marketing and communication.
And this is not only for the luxury companies, says Elodie. “We have designed learning portals for companies in luxury watches and pharmaceutical industries; they distribute learning contents and services directly on tablets that are now essential tools to everyday work life; employees can access demoes for their clients and training.”
A well designed learning portal is graphically appealing with an intuitive navigation. Gamification can add some playful and interactive elements that will motivate the learner. On the side of the training manager, it is important to engage learners and keep them engaged and motivated to learn, whereas the administrator will emphasize an the needs to have clear and useful reporting dashboards.
Elodie finally explains that the tools offered by MOS – MindOnSite allow to create beautiful design, without too much efforts: the Team MOS – MindOnSite ”co-designs” the portals and the content directly with the clients, using the style and interface editors (integrated modules in the LMS platform).
In order to get a better insight of the impact and the challenges of having a well designer learning portal, MOS – MindOnSite is organizing a webinar on the “Design of Learning Portals” on the 21 October. This webinar will be held in French.
