Designing Dynamic Visual Engagement

Why should we use visual assets in our training materials at all? Isn’t content enough itself? The answer to these questions is simple: Our brains are wired to learn visually and having rich visuals in training materials—including eLearning—makes learning far more engaging.

So, if a picture speaks a thousand words, what can dynamic visuals convey? The possibilities are mind-boggling! Join Howard Lewis as he takes us through the best practices, tips, and guidelines to leverage visuals—right from animations to videos—in corporate training. Expect lots of interaction along with practical quick references. Take your dynamic visual assets to the next level!

During this session, we will discuss:

  • Ways to identify opportunities for dynamic visual assets that inspire learning
  • How to apply critical visual design principles
  • A streamlined creative visual asset design process
  • Considerations for auto-run versus self-drive
