Very often, upon the initial excitement by the opportunities the technology offers and the possibilities of crafting rich media educational content, teachers 'forget' about the pedagogical aspects when developing interactive online materials with HotPotatoes and QuizPort in Moodle. The presentation explores the effectiveness and the educational value of blending content, visual design and usability when learning and teaching theories are taken into account. The presenter demonstrates good and bad practices throughout the talk emphasizing the pedagogically informed decisions about structuring content, visual design and usability.
