roundup resourcesThe sun is shining at last, and that puts us in the mood for sharing. In the past two months, Epic’s thought leaders have published some fantastic free resources that feature best practice design tips, helpful guides and more.

Here’s my top five newly released resources that you don’t want to miss:

1.  Audio for learning is a valuable insight that explores the advantages and disadvantages of audio: where it helps and where it hinders, and what clients and designers need to bear in mind when designing audio components for learning.

2. This practical ‘how to’ on Five simple steps for adapting your multi-device strategy is exactly what it says on the tin.

3. Multimedia resources are a powerful aid to learning. Moving images, motion graphics and dynamic text in combination with sound effects, narration or dialogue, stimulate viewer’s cognitive processing, emotional and even physical responses. Learn what new multimedia techniques we use to enhance learning in our new ‘At a glance’ on Video and multimedia for learning.

4, Our brand-new white paper The psychology of learning takes an in-depth look at how we learn and what this means for training.

5. In Going mobile – native or web apps? you can explore the advantages and disadvantages of both native and HTML web apps.

And as a bonus resource for a long train journey, why not download Mobile learning for the NHS, a research study that seeks to discover the potential benefits of mobile learning for the healthcare workforce, which was undertaken in collaboration with NHS South of England.
