About the webinar:

Design systems are commonly used in digital product design. Some of the most famous design systems belong to global companies such as the BBC and Google. Outwardly, design systems help these companies maintain a recognisable brand and a visual look and feel for their customers. But design systems go much deeper than that. They also affect user interactions and expectations; how internal development teams work together; and how good design and user experience is managed across the ecosystem of interfaces that these companies maintain for their users.

This session will demonstrate how a design system  can be a powerful tool for scaling the creation of digital learning experiences, particularly in environments where many different partners need to work together. The session will show how a learning design system helps to

  • serve students better consistently;
  • support teachers;
  • coordinate work;
  • accelerate work; and
  • maintain quality.
