HP: LIFE e-Learning
HP LIFE e-Learning provides online courses to help you gain real-life business and technology skills to start or grow your business or integrate entrepreneurship lessons into your educational program. The courses are interactive, self-paced, and full of practical exercises. And they are FREE!
Why we like it
- Online learning and course platform from tech giants HP
- Good example of the flexibility of design when your elearning program is built in a web page – allows you to put content together in a meaningful way with scrolling, rather than chunking it over several screens with the next button to progress, users can simply scroll down the page.
- This means the background images can be context based and used for maximising the concepts without compromising the detail
- Good solid learning design takes you through a ‘story’ to introduce the concepts and then uses the characters and the story throughout the module to give the course real life context.
- Interactive practice activities take you through a step-by-step guided simulation.
- The learning journey is helpfully displayed at the top of the screen so you can see your progress and navigate quickly to other topics in the module
- Learner driven, you can easily jump around the topics in any order without getting lost.
- A ‘Course Discussion’ button lets you toggle to live up-to-date forum for discussing the content of the course with other learners in real time
- Because it’s a platform you can jump out of the course material and into the Community area.
How to improve this elearning
We like the use of high quality graphics with simple speech bubble call-outs for the case studies – it’s a simple, lite approach – so we wouldn’t advocate changing it, but for a richer experience, some video excerpts could work really nicely.
