Session Description

Students often complain that it takes too much time to find what they need to do, rather than doing what needs to get done. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore design ideas to make it easier for students to navigate content and activities. We will look at examples of courses that utilize intentional navigation strategies and consider how to add these best practices to our own courses. We will also discuss ways to gather and apply real-time student feedback to improve the user’s experience.
