Google’s Material Design has offered a framework for designing lively and elegant web experiences. The broad three premises of material design can be summarized as visual, architectural and experiential.

The first premise of adopting material design in elearning courses starts from the very idea of the graphic user interface (GUI). An elearning course user interface (UI) may comprise of components like Next and Previous buttons, Toolkit, Transcript, and Search buttons. These components may vary with each elearning developer.

Material designing in elearning begins with the first very important feature, ‘The Navigation Drawer‘.

The navigation drawer spans the full height of the screen and the drawer opens below the status bar.

Google’s material design recommends navigation through the navigational drawer, and hence the need to design an anchor screen for showing the lessons and topic is no longer necessary. Instead, the anchor screen can be effectively used to deliver the course introduction.

The status bar can be utilized to show breadcrumbs of the section, lesson or topic.

The bottom bar can be used for the in-course navigation, i.e., for the next and previous buttons. It is a joy to see how action buttons can be used to host many additional course elements such as transcript, toolkits, search, etc.

With the power of HTML5, the concept of realism can be adopted very well in elearning design. Authentic motion relating to the shape and mass of an object or shape can be designed to achieve spatial relationships, functionality, and intention with beauty and fluidity.

Even with rapid authoring tools, meaningful transitions can be designed to deliver delightful experiences. Material designing in elearning offers an entirely new realm of engagement designing.
