Examples


Sprint

The cover of the sprint is the priority and differentiating visual element in the platform, represented both in the carousels, as in the detail and the cover of each of them, so correct selection, visually and communicative, is very important.


Mission block

Mission block images, which can be represented in three different formats or omitted, they are used to visually separate sets of activities with common characteristics.


Activities

The activities are represented in square format within a sprint, adjusted in width and height to the same format. In this case the importance lies in the visual connection with the other activities, and in the correspondence or relation with their content.


Channels

The channels are shared spaces and their image fulfills the function of representing a learning area both in the list of the cover, and heading the entity once opened.


Good practices


Quality

Sprints

Sprints are the showcase for your content, so your presentation should be both understandable and stimulating. For this, both presentation and interactivity are crucial.



Good practices

Length

Organiza tu contenido de manera comprensible, reduciendo al máximo el número de actividades sintetizando el contenido de aprendizaje y utilizando los bloques de misión para combinar actividades con contenido relacionado.




Recommended number

Mission blocks

From 1 to 3

Activities within mission block

From 3 to 5

Unity

Apply a unique visual metaphor in headers and icons to combine different resources from different sources. It avoids continuous repetitions and elements that do not connect the container with its content.

Interaction

Interactions are crucial for the student to focus on content. You can use the milestones that block activities and mission blocks, as well as the different gamification tools.

Gamification

Plan ahead for gamification rules and prizes.

Milestones

Set milestones to unlock content when completing exercises.

Activities

Use short, simple activities, such as short or interactive videos.
