gomo learning workshop
Following our first gomo learning workshop, Team Kiln are delighted with the feedback we’ve received from our delegates, with one saying:
“The Kiln examples and the show and tell of how they were achieved was excellent.”
The day was held at Whittlebury Hall, a stone’s throw from Silverstone race track, in the heart of the country.
The workshop was centred on responsive design within gomo and how to get the best out of the tool, with talks from UX experts, including Kiln Director, Sonia Insley.
The delegates were engaged and interactive, asking questions and listening intently to the tips and advice.
The day also included a demonstration of gomo’s latest features from gomo Managing Director, Mike Alcock, and presentations from myself (Kiln Director, Louise Cox) on learning design, wireframing content, action mapping, and how to write for multi-device.
The workshop, which was aimed at helping existing gomo users to get the best out of the tool, offered tips and expertise which was enthusiastically received.
Top user experience tips from Sonia Insley included:
“The user experience shouldn’t be compromised by the device. Their experience should always be user friendly.”
“Every image counts. You set the tone of your message with the images on-screen, including background images. Random images – even if they’re beautiful photographs – will only detract from your content. Keep it relevant.”
“Be aware of the fold, as it changes with responsive themes. Put key messages at the top of the screen but give a reason to scroll.”
Kiln will be hosting more workshops in future, on responsive design, how to create great e-learning, working with subject matter experts, and gomo workshops.
