Icon Navigation

Students have told me that they had trouble navigating 15 weeks of lessons on Labodanglais.com. A long list of links and text is a lot to process in your second language. The problem becomes more acute on smaller screens. To help students navigate, I added icons.

Now each lesson has a clickable icon associated with it at the top of the page. Each icon is thematically related to a lesson. Clicking one icon instantly repositions the page to that lesson. Within each lesson, there are icons to help students understand what’s expected of them in the lab and for homework.

Icon navigation eliminates a lot of scrolling and confusion for students. If your students have ever told you that they feel lost on your course website, you’ll like this feature.
