Gestalt Principles for E-learning Design

Type of project: Personal project.

Project brief: Introduce the Gestalt principles to Instructional Design students or beginner Instructional Designers.

Audience: Aspiring Instructional Designers.

Instructional design approach: I recreated an old PowerPoint deck on the Gestalt principles for e-learning design as an interactive presentation in Canva. The presentation follows a simple structure: Every principle is described with a short text and a simple illustration. Next, an animated image shows manifestations of the principle in the surrounding environment. This is followed by an example of the principle’s application to e-learning design.

My role: SME, Instructional Designer, and E-learning Developer.

Tools: Canva
