Building Beautiful Courses

Instructional design

A beautiful Moodle course is visually enhanced for navigation, accessibility, and engagement. A course that's nice to look at without any substance doesn't make a great course; a course that uses visuals to dynamically enhance the course in a myriad of ways has the potential to be a great course.

So come and talk to us about making courses "beautiful!"

  • modern web design
  • color scheming/theory
  • accessibility considerations when utilizing visual elements
  • multimedia - where to find it, how to ethically share it, & how to add it properly
  • designing with mobile devices in mind
  • instructional design influence

We'll also talk about how using layouts, lessons, blocks, and books can be instrumental in helping you to create an attractive, dynamic learning space.
