I couldn't find a topic that seemed to be directly about navigation, so I have created this new one.
I basically just wanted to share a blog post I recently added on how less is more. I know we say it all the time, but do we really mean it, and do we fight for it when it comes to the crunch. It is so easy to say ok to many suggestions and keep adding features and handy links etc. but what is the compromise to usability?
I've done a mockup (which I actually created a while ago) that hopefully challenges what really needs to be on the course landing page, based on the less is more principle (also known as interference effects in psychology). I've inserted the first page, but do have a quick look at the rationale on the blog.
This is very rough, but happy to hear thoughts about this mockup which also incorporates some pretty standard web navigation techniques used these days.
P.S. If anyone could somehow get 'Open in a new window' to be the default mode when creating a link in Moodle, I would be FOREVER grateful!
