User Experience for Learning (LXD)
We often get asked, what’s the difference between ‘Instructional Design’ and ‘User Experience for Learning’?. Well, the difference is both huge and subtle at the same time. Instructional Design (ID) is an established field in which the composition of information is optimized, whether this is text and imagery, infographics, video design or the design of logical sequencing of key information. Instructional design principles are the backbone to e-learning solutions which have been developed over the past three decades.
There is a vast amount of research that demonstrates that user interface and interaction design significantly affects how well users engage with the technology. Simply, in the world of Learning Experience Design (LXD), the objective is to aid someone learn something. It is the combination of Instructional Design (ID) and User Experience (UX) design. Ultimately, the goal is to enhance learning outcomes and augment the overall quality of the learning experience. A huge component of LXD is the designing of an intuitive user interface (UI) in a way that supports and enhances the cognitive and affective processes that learning requires.
Learning Experience Design (LXD) goes beyond the usual E-Learning platforms and encompasses mobile applications, interactive videos and gamification of learning content. All of which is developed in house by the talented team at Periquest Ltd. The managing director of the business holds a PhD in the field of context aware learning, and how mobile applications can affect the user experience of the learner.
