Presenter: Christian Rogers, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), USA Abstract: Many websites, learning management systems and apps are available today for communication, delivery of content, interactivity and assessment in educational scenarios. While pedagogical methods are more than likely considered when developing these tools, many times user experience falls through the cracks both for the student and the instructor. Both faculty and students are often left frustrated and unable to find content which can leave these tools useless to the user. This workshop tells the story of bloated interfaces and cumbersome navigation and why it is pedagogical principles, usability and user experience that is needed when developing and evaluating these tools for learning. We will look at principles of design and user experience and tools for design, prototyping and testing. Topics that will be covered will be persona creation, tools for design and prototyping and ways to test user experience before unleashing a tool to the masses.
