This week’s challenge is to create an interactive graphic based on a recent Articulate survey about what people love and hate about e-learning. So I did!
Above all, I thought the biggest advantage of the interactive graphic would be to add a main menu so the user could quickly scan topics and jump to the details. It can be a struggle to scroll through a long graphic – especially on mobile devices – so the quick jump would be a plus.
The other thing I noticed was that even though the original infographic talks about love and hate, I wasn’t seeing much hate. So my other idea was to graphically represent that imbalance.
Ultimately I ended up designing it around two things: The idea and image of a scale to illustrate the imbalance of positive and negative survey results – and the idea and image of e-learning devices. After falling in love with a red vector scale, I let it determine part of the color scheme and most of the overall design aesthetic. That’s a pretty good scale.
I put the content detail on slide layers and let e-learning devices have a hand in presenting them.
Weighing the Results
And remember – if there’s something you don’t love about e-learning, you can be the change.
