5 Ways To Use Elucidat's New Layout Designer 

1. Create Learning Your Way

Layout Designer

With Layout Designer, create a new page layout is simple. For example, with a drag-and-drop motion, you can add a poll next to a video you created to get instant feedback from viewers. You can also easily add text next to an image or combine interactions into a page to build a game, all without technical skills.

Experienced learning designers can also enjoy the advanced features of Layout Designer by producing custom branded templates to be used by your entire Learning and Development team. Use a ready-made layout or start from scratch. You can arrange your content layout in a smooth, continuous scrolling page or create an entirely custom design. It doesn't matter whether the content that you want to create for your digital learning experience is 30 minutes or 30 seconds long - you get to design the layout and decide how you want it to look and feel.

2. Improve An Existing Page In 60 Seconds

If you think it is difficult to create an experience that promotes social and reflective learning with polls that evoke the opinions of your learners, then think again. With Layout Designer, within 60 seconds, you can modify a typical Elucidat Likert Scale question to a custom layout that features a graphical introduction and audio. Moreover, this adjustment can be used in as many projects as you desire.

By making these changes with Elucidat Layout Designer, you can combine content, such as exemplary videos of conversations between managers and employees, to build in branching based on your learners' responses to the polls you created.

3. Save Your Layouts

Smart Save Layout Designer

Take advantage of Layout Designer’s smart save options. With Layout Designer, you can save the layout for just this page, every page type like this in your project, or give this layout a whole new name.

You can also decide whether to keep this layout just for this project or use it right across the board.

4. Tailor Your Design To Different Devices

The Elucidat responsive scroll bar simplifies the look of your layout and design on multiple devices and facilitates design adaptation on other devices. For example, after dropping in an additional button on a mobile version and linking it to online support, you can add any form of branching, such as Rules. You can also add any type of scoring method. To tailor your design and keep your team current on how to use these design features on different devices, you can easily add comments to your layout.
