Golden Rules for Audio in eLearning and Design

Hi LX Community Members!
Audio Design is a topic that recently has more attention paid to it. I’m grateful!
Being a podcast designer, I have a passionate interest in this area of learning design.
I’m not sure if it has been categorized as a design topic, but I’m making a bold claim this area should be included or at the least examined by all learning experience designers when designing learning experiences. We know how important visual content is to increase learner engagement, and now we need to include the audio learning experience for increasing learner engagement.

“eLearning is typically associated with written online content and visuals. In some cases, even tactile elements are integrated to cater to our sense of touch. But the ears are often left out of the equation. Using the right audio in your eLearning course design can make it even more engaging, emotional, and memorable for your online learners.”
