Article Title: Designing eLearning for Cognitive Ease
Publication: Integrated Learnings: eLearning
Summary: Daniel Kahneman dedicates a chapter to the topic of cognitive ease in his book, Thinking, Fast and Slow. This article suggests how some of the findings Kahneman presents can benefit eLearning design.
The amount of time spent on eLearning may influence mood, too. Long lessons may leave learners wondering if they’ll ever end, while a series of short lessons can help create a sense of progress. Shorter lessons can also help prompt learners take a brief break and re-energize if they’re feeling mentally fatigued.
