Cards as a guiding metaphor

Home Page Cards Present and highlight multiple parts of your course on the home page. Press Add+ to get started Trigger


Feedback Rules 1) I click add + 2) Fill in the heading and select the type of card 3) Press submit Then a new card appears

Trigger> Response > Feedback Let me repeat the pattern

I can follow use these rules repeatedly and another card type appears

Trigger: What happens if I click on the cross


Feedback: The card disappears when I confirm my decision

Rules 1) I click X 2) I’m asked to confirm 3) When I confirm the card disappears 4) And the cards are re-arranged

Trigger - An onscreen event that triggers the interaction Response - The users response to the trigger Feedback - The reaction of the computer to the users response Rules - The generalised rules developed by the user to explain this interaction

The interface should 1) Treat each widget independently, but be consistent 2) Allow the user to re-arrange the page, but also rearrange automatically 3) Optimise the layout according to the screen width WIDGET Each of the cards are independent of each other but same rules apply to each block SHAPESHIFT If I move cards around, the screen arrangement is readjusted to fit cards in optimally MASONARY The cards can move around so as to fit into the screen size
