Competency Description

While the intellectual or informational content of learning materials is obviously important, so, too, is the visual design of those materials. This competency provides an introduction to visual design and reinforces the value of following universal design for learning (UDL) standards. You will get to see visual design principles at work in educational artifacts and consider how they affect the learners who engage with them.

This course is also available in the User Experience Track.

You will have six months to complete this competency and can review the materials at any time during this period. If you wish to access these resources after the six months, you will need to re-enroll.

Upon completion of this competency you will be able to:

  • Apply visual design standards to enhance the learner experience.
  • Apply the UDL framework and visual navigation/iconography to create course designs.
  • Define important principles of design and their application in creating visually appealing course designs.
