    From John Medinas Book Brain Rules, we have noticed these two:

    #6: We don't pay attention to boring things

    #9: Vision trumps all other senses


    We started using Blackboard in August 2016 for selected courses as pilots at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), campus Gjøvik. We soon found out that we could enhance the user experience by adding icons and images in various menus, items, learning modules, pages and so on. This presentation will explain our ideas and show some examples. We will also in detail show how these examples are created.
