Lesson times

LXD Factory offers microlearning experiences to help users find quick answers to specific questions during their time of need. As a result, lesson times should be limited to 2 - 7 minutes.

Writing style

The tone of voice in LXD Factory writing is light and conversational.

Word choice

To ensure consistency across all lessons, please use the word choices below:

 

LXD Factory or LXDFactory.com

Use LXD Factory (with a space between LXD and Factory) or LXDFactory.com.

learning experience designer or learning designer

These are the preferred role titles for all lessons. You may refer to other titles if they are necessary to support the content (e.g. instructional designer, performance consultant, learning and development specialist).

select or scroll

When writing instructions for multimedia interactions, remember that users may be on a computer or mobile device - so we need to use device-agnostic verbs. For instance, avoid the terms like  “click” or “tap,” which are relevant to specific devices only.

Multimedia interactions

To improve SEO, keywords for all lessons should be included in text format. However, key concepts can also be emphasized and delivered via multimedia interactions, such as carousels, videos, infographics, and more.

LXD Factory lessons should include multimedia content that is created using Canva, because it can easily be integrated into Wix blog posts via HTML. Contact Crystal Hunter at info@LXDfactory.com to get access to Canva (to be used for LXD Factory development purposes only).

If you have access to and want to use another multimedia authoring tool, please contact Crystal Hunter for pre-approval.
