Elucidat: How To Make A Cup Of Tea
The average Brit drinks just under 900 cups of tea a year, that’s enough to fill two whole bathtubs! I wonder if that includes the cups of tea we make but forget to drink – come on, I can’t be the only one! Elucidat uses this every day act to showcase our vertical scrolling navigation and timeline interaction.
Why we like it
- Demonstrates an alternative to the ‘click Next to continue’ type navigation. Scrolling feels more web-based and adds more variety to your delivery. Scrolling also makes it easier to design for multiple devices since tablet and smartphone users do a lot of scrolling anyway.
- Uses a Hotspot Image Box to get the learner thinking rather than a traditional Single Choice Questionnaire page type. This way learners get to explore other options; useful for this kind of ‘did you know’ type question.
- Demonstrates a Timeline to present sequential information in a single interaction. With this page type learners click hotspots on the Timeline to get more information about the subject.
- The drop zone image used in the Drag and Drop page type visually fits the subject matter of the module. Who says you have to use a dull empty box?
How to improve this elearning
As you would limit the amount of Next button clicking you have in a module, you also need to ‘control the scroll’. No-one wants pages that go on forever, so think about keeping each scrolling page to a single learning objective or activity with a variety of interactions or components.
