Finds: What Makes Design Seem Intuitive? — from Williams Instructional Design, LLC

This entertaining and informative presentation by Jared spool of User Interface Engineering on, “What Makes Design Seem Intuitive?,” addresses web design, but much of his message applies to instructional design as well. Some of the gems of insight include…(see posting)

From DSC:
When we put educational materials online, we instantly create a user interface.
From the students’ standpoints, how intuitive/usable are those interfaces?

When we don’t enforce some type of consistency in our online-based offerings, do we not put the monkeys on the back of our students to try and figure out how their current instructor does things (i.e. where the syllabus is, where the discussion board forums are, etc.)?

And might I add in here (which I realize is controversial), this is yet another reason why we need to move towards the use of teams in higher ed. One person can not do it all anymore…it’s just too big of a job now. We can’t expect our subject matter experts to be usability/interface design/instructional design/interaction design specialists.

Today we communicate a bit differently. Our information is fragmented across various mass-media channels and delivered through ever-changing technology. It has become watered down, cloned, and is churned out quickly in 140-character blurbs. We’ve lost that personal touch where we find an emotional connection that makes us care.
