Graphic User Interface
The graphic user interface (GUI) is the space where interactions between users and electronic devices occur.
In e-Learning, the ultimate goal of GUI design is to produce a GUI that makes it easy, efficient and enjoyable to use. This correlates to a user-friendly and intuitive interface that requires minimal input from the learner, with minimal undesired outputs to the learner.
Taking into account what makes for the most effective e-Learning, the GUI should also include elements that interact with the human senses of touch, sight and sound.
Each of these GUI designs share the characteristics that make for quality, effective e-Learning design, including clarity, concision, familiarity, responsiveness, consistency, aesthetics, efficiency and forgiveness.
