Ideas for Welcome Screen in eLearning

Are you looking for new ideas for welcome screen in elearning projects? So do I! This week I had the need of developing a proposal of an eLearning module. I didn’t want to create a regular welcome screen so I wondered where to get inspired. There are tons of good examples in websites and today I’m sharing with all of you my own ideas for welcome screen.

What’s the purpose of welcome screens

As it stands the words “welcome screen” this is the first screen that your student will see. As it happens with food, the first impression counts. So if you introduce your course in a way that creates some kind of expectation or it’s appealing to the eyes or it seems it can be engaging, then, we are contributing in engaging our student at least at the beginning.

Where to get inspired?

Browse to different modern websites to get inspired to find some patterns that can be applied in your elearning projects. Students are already comfortable to those websites, thus, we can assume that if we create a course following the same patterns, students will feel more comfortable with the learning content, will understand the navigation, and will understand the hierarchy easily.

Example 1. Idea taken from a blog

Among the different ideas for welcome screen in elearning projects here it is a dummy course following the visual design trends that I mentioned in this previous post, in Spanish though, and by following how the content is organised in the Administrate blog.

As you can see in this example:

  1. Image in a landscape mode
  2. Brief introduction of the course explaining what is the course about
  3. Table of contents

Example 2. Idea taken from a slideshow

In this second example I created a welcome screen based on the idea of slideshows. Each image is a link to the table of contents.
As you can see the welcome screen is divided into the following sections:

  1. Image in a landscape mode. Each image is one of the topics of the course.
  2. Brief introduction of the course explaining what is the course about
  3. Table of contents
  4. Go directly to that topic
  5. Navigation buttons to navigate between the images
