Use Articulate Storyline 360 to format text consistently, respect the brand, and use good type design to create easy-to-understand a professional-looking content for your elearning courses.
- [Instructor] We can spend a lot of time…developing the content for our slides…but if it isn't readable what good is it?…Let's talk about some ways that you…can improve the typography in your own e-learning courses.…Typography is key to learner engagement.…We want consistency, for example,…we want all the headlines to be exactly the same.…We want readability.…And when everything is in it's place…and arranged properly it's less distracting…for the learner so they can concentrate on the content.…Let's take a look at a few examples.…
This line of text is way too big for on this slide,…and this one is way too small.…Here's an example of a size that's just about right.…Another thing to consider is contrast.…Not only do we want high contrast for readability,…but any visually impaired learners…are using screen reading software…and if the contrast is too low…they won't be able to decipher the text.…Let's take a look at character spacing as well.…This example is way too tight to be readable.…
And this one is way too loose.…
