Summary:

In our previous lesson, we talked about what makes a site effective in visual terms. In this lesson we've added to our visual knowledge and learned how we, as designers, can help or hinder learners through the way we design navigation within the site. In our next lesson, we will tackle another major instructional design area, assessment, and we will look at how to create html forms to create and deliver on-line tests.

Assignment:

You will practice what you've learned in this lesson by visiting an online lesson and evaluating how it has (or hasn't) applied the guidelines presented here. The link will open up in a new window so you will be able to reference this page while doing the assignment. You will create a text file in your text editor, save and name it using our typical procedure, and send it as an email attachment to me before 5:00 PM, Friday, September 26.

Directions:
