As our industry embraces new technology, elearning programs need to be built with responsiveness in mind. Take a look at these seven examples of awesome responsive elearning design.
This elearning captures years of knowledge from 15,000 colleagues. Virgin media uses Snagit to record simple informative videos to share with the rest of the organization. This is a great example of how a large organization can capture tacit knowledge for company-wide distribution in a mobile friendly, responsive design.
Through gamification, Open University learners input their moral responses to different types of lies through four case studies. Users can then compare their views to those of some major western philosophers. This elearning was developed by Make Sense Design.
Features we like:
- Responsive design – functions great on all devices.
- Interactive, engaging and entertaining.
- Multi-media approach using video, narrative and ‘talking heads’.
- Formative feedback for learner responses helps learners align philosophical principles to key questions about morality.
- Tracks the learners’ responses and builds a learner’s philosophical profile.

Petsync was looking for a way to deliver their Path to Responsible Dog Ownership series to a wide audience. With help from Designing Digitally, they developed an elearning solution which was far more engaging than a traditional paper pamphlet. The course uses HTML5, which is displayed beautifully on desktops as well as mobile devices without the need to install native applications.

NSC used computer-aided imagery and animation to bring FAUN Trackway’s systems to life in this browser-based elearning system. We love the detailed digital imagery, high-fidelity animations and slick multimedia clips.

- Simulation-based approach provides realistic training without the risk.
- Tabbed resources are available from a sidebar (glossary, menu etc.) and a progress bar lets you see where you are in the module.
