Customer friendly interface is a important factor when comes to choosing webinar platform for your business. But first it’s worth to find out what should we define as user-friendly interface. What should it look like? And how to recognize webinar tools which succeed in good looking and making things simpler to users at the same time?
A good looking interface cannot be just good looking. Design must come with functionality, so not each webinar platform has interface which are aesthetic, functional and intuitive at the same time. How to recognize interface like this? And what should we pay attention to during our daily use of specific webinar software?
Good Webinar Software must have simple interface
It’s good to know that good webinars software has interface which is practically invisible to the user. It has no unnecessary buttons, date fields, pop-ups, sliders and other elements which are taking up the space. However existing elements of the interface have to be designed according to visual hierarchy, their color, placement and size must work together and create a clear path for user to make him understand the platform itself (or its functionality). On the other side visible elements have to make sense. Keep an eye on arrangement of interface elements – their careful placement can help draw attention to the most important pieces of information.
Good Webinar Software has to be designed with consistence
Consistency is a key to creating well-designed webinar software. If you are using one make sure that software language, layout and design work together. It’s also worth to notice if webinar platform creates patterns through all these elements. If there are the same graphical user interface controls, the same typography, the same keyboard shortcuts, and similar layouts across the whole platform, this is the way to make any webinar platform easy-to-use and intuitive. With this kind of design users can learn something once and reuse that knowledge everywhere.
Good Webinar Software should anticipate your goals
This is known also as “reducing the burden on the user” and can be easily noticed in the construction of the forms for example. You should especially pay attention to the moments when you’re planning webinar, adding new presenter profile or creating registration form for your webinar. Does the construction of forms save you the effort of filling them in manually? Does the webinar tool suggest performing certain actions for you? Also you should make sure that all labels for actions are clear and concise. Keep an eye on all error messages. They should be explicit about what went wrong and how you can fix it. Look at the typeface and text arrangement too and make sure they are making interface readable and scannable. In our opinion these 3 factors are the most important ones when comes to tell how live webinar software should look like. We hope thanks to our article you will find out how to recognize which webinar tools on the market are most compliant with UX & UI rules.
