Improve Memory Retention With Functional Animation

Feb 07, 2023
Functional animation reduces cognitive overload, attracts users’ attention, reduces change blindness, strengthens signifiers, and communicates feedback. When used subtly, it improves the user experience, which results in broadened brain processing and positive effect as noted by psychologist Don Norman. In this session, we’ll discuss the importance of functional animation and the different ways to adapt your course to provide an enhanced user experience. You’ll learn about the multiple functions and purpose that animation has—from visual feedback to navigational transitions. In addition, you’ll gain a step-by-step process for adding in different functional animations that are relevant to the task of helping users interact with your course.
