Screen Shot 2012-08-19 at 20.36.48I was talking about design with a colleague recently and we wondered briefly what constraints we had on ourselves that we ourselves imposed.

Scrolling seems so self-evidently the right solution to lots of text, yet lots of authoring tools are predicated on a fixed screen format of design that not simply encourages the text ‘n next approach to learning design.

Similarly, a lot of elearning follows an eerily family format of a couple of screens of text, perhaps with a non-essential, thematically linked image or two, perhaps sprinkled with “engaging” click-to-reveal interactions then a question.

It’s quite normal to see all sorts of audio controls on the chrome of the player, despite the fact that Windows has separate volume controls, as do most computers (on dedicated buttons), speakers and many headphones.
