Placeholder Images: Do They Help or Hurt in an eLearning Storyboard?

Association eLearning

Not so long ago, in a nearby place, someone spent a lot of time leaving notes about the photos in an eLearning storyboard. The final course was going to use a different set of stock photos.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007 My Online Visual Identity When Michele Martin changed her profile picture the other day, I realized I was a bit disoriented. And I saw how one dimensional our images of our online contacts (and digital friends) can be -- typically based on the same profile picture thats used in countless places. Ive had the same profile picture up for months -- on my blog, in Facebook, MyBlogLog, and now here. Can I, um, have your attention, please?

How to Use eLearning Characters in Intro Screens

eLearningArt

Instead of sorting through 10 million photos on a stock photo site to find the one or two that work, you’re inverting the process to create flexibility. If you’re looking for a course targeted at medical school students, how about a picture of a young doctor in a labcoat? If you’re doing a course about factory fire prevention, how about a picture of a guy in a uniform? Ask yourself: “Can my audience picture this character as one of their coworkers?”.

Learningtogo

Close your eyes again and picture your training room or elearning template. This parallel use of color in multiple regions of the brain suggests that our response to color is far more significant than what we have previously supposed, so I write this post knowing that much more information is needed on the subject. Another group of scientists discovered that when we look at photos of objects that are known to us, our brain fills in the expected color , even though it isn’t there.

Cognitive Load vs. Load Time

eLearning Weekly

Cognitive load theory inspires designers to influence various neural systems so attention is focused and retention is optimal. But I write that with a sigh because it never worked. It blended narration, text and image; it encouraged, nay, required interaction—more meaningful than simply clicking to advance; and it matched learning events to attention spans, appealing to different parts of the brain. In creative writing courses I’ve taught, we call it sculpting.
