Creating Your Course Brand with Anna Stirling & Lené Whitley-Putz

Beautiful things work better; this statement is supported by research and shows that aesthetics in distance education courses is important to students successfully mastering curriculum content. Similarly, consistent course design reduces cognitive load during the learning process. Combining aesthetics and consistency helps you build your course design brand.

During this presentation we’ll explain how developing a strategy for aesthetic course design, including selecting a color scheme, building navigation cues, and creating instructional content graphics can provide clarity through consistency to support student engagement and learning. We’ll provide resources, examples, and Canvas templates that you can use to enhance your online or digital materials.
