Extended Abstract

This session will be an exploration of how purposeful, user-centric design can positively impact learner outcomes. We will analyze design elements from popular consumer-oriented software to see what they can teach us about designing for learning. By connecting the dots between these popular platforms and examples of theme design built on popular open source platforms like Moodle and Totara, attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of what it means to design with intention, ideas for simple design improvements that can be made to their sites and courses, and resources for further exploration and application of this topic.
