graphic design for e-learning
I have a question about graphic design as it relates to e-learning. I am one of those folks who "fell" into Learning and Development, and I have never taken any kind of formal graphic design classes. Not surprisingly, the look and feel of our presentations is very important to our company. I haven't produced bad presentations in the past, but also didn't venture outside of the marketing templates in the past. Now that I am trying to move the company's training forward by applying e-learning best practices, I am realizing that I could benefit from learning some about graphic design, as it relates to the look and feel of a presentation, especially with PowerPoint -- most of our presentations are currently in PowerPoint or get converted to articulate presenter or storyline. I do not want a less than perfect presentation to take away from my credibility and otherwise good e-learning suggestions.
Is there anything that anyone can suggest to me as resources for some basics for graphic design? Maybe a book or youtube video(s)? If you can suggest search terms/things I should google, that will also help me out.
