Abstract

This best practice session will demonstrate how different types of interface design and interactions can impact the active engagement of adult learners in professional training eLearning situations. Research was conducted with 15 learners to analyze the unique responses to different types of interface designs and media. This included collecting responses to eye data and eye movements using an eye tracking system. This allowed for recording how long learner's attention was focused on certain types of interfaces and how the different types of media and design impacted the movement of the eyes and fixation of attention. The types of designs that were most impactful will be shared as best practice ideas for future consideration.
