Lesson: Articles on Visual Design - 2 views

  • Unity has to do with all elements on a page visually or conceptually appearing to belong together. Visual design must strike a balance between unity and variety to avoid a dull or overwhelming design.

      How do new online instructors ensure that their lessons have clear instructions, engaging content, and meaningful learning outcomes?
  • Lesson planning is also useful for helping facilitators and technical writers transition to instructional design roles.
    • khageman2
      Educators transitioning to creators of online content may find great value in using comparative and detailed lesson plans to ensure development of quality course content.
  • Though developing a lesson plan for e-Learning is similar in many ways to developing a lesson plan for instructor-led learning, there are also differences.
    • khageman2
