- Keep lengthy interactive processes as simple and brief as possible.
- Break long interaction into separate pages, while allowing learners to keep track of their progress.
- Provide simple reminders such as "step 2 of 4" to help learners keep track of what they have already done and what is left to do.
- Provide clear instructions at the start of any task.
- Avoid making extreme changes in how you deliver your course without first warning students. Course navigation should be as predictable as possible, or at least proceeded by warnings and/or explanations as to why any changes might be occurring.
- Use headings or visual cues to focus the attention of learners. Avoid background noises or images that distract. Use bulleted and numbered lists.
- Provide information in multiple formats.
