An "open" course becomes self-regulating based on the learner's ability, but may be weak in assessing results. With iTunes U, Udemy, etc - yes you CAN skip ahead to lesson 20, but if you don't understand it the natural response is to backtrack to earlier lessons to fill in what you missed. The result is that novice learners follow a sequential learning path ...

I would certainly not recommend arranging the panels in a grid layout like shown in the picture. Instead a linear arrangement would be neat and easy on the eyes considering the formal nature of this application.

This includes, among other things, making sure that the structure of the system/service is compliant to normal human heuristics and common standards.

Consider a folksonomy as an informal taxonomy (for an individual, group, community, organization, industry, etc., entity), as opposed to a governed or formal taxonomy of the entity. Folksonomies tend to be built from ad-hoc contributions of terms, not governed choices, so in general, folksonomy tags would not be governed, although they could be increasingly ...

My plan would be to explain to the higher ups in corporate that there are countless reasons that HTML is better than PDF's. Explain that they are smaller files so they will save money in storage and bandwidth, they are more modular so they can be used on all devices without rewriting them saving time and money, and these usability reasons listed below: Of ...
