As the world of education has moved online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a virtual learning environment has become exceedingly important. With the increasing demand for Learning Management Systems, good design has become crucial to retain users and attract new business.
With our experience in designing online learning software, we at Tcules, have understood that the students/trainees find it difficult to get through online courses due to reasons like lack of motivation or engagement, feeling isolated or emotionally disconnected, inaccessibility etc.
Our approach to
designing eLearning software
Our job was to create a seamless, playful online-to-offline learning experience for children enrolled into creative writing courses. We reimagined the brand, created stories, redesigned user experience, and applied it all to Moodle LMS.

How to design great eLearning platforms - A thread— tcules - a UX UI design agency (@tculesIT) June 15, 2021
With schools having moved online, there has been an increase in demand for engaging eLearning platforms that can hold user attention.
As an agency that has been designing eLearning platforms for a while, these are our tips:
UX for teens 🧵— tcules - a UX UI design agency (@tculesIT) October 12, 2021
We might think that since teens are so closely integrated with technology, we don't need to make any adjustments when designing for them.
However, tests have revealed that teens lack patience, are slow readers and aren't prepared for research.
What separates Tcules from other eLearning designers in the industry?
At Tcules, we understand that designing for eLearning platforms is not just about optimising the UX but also about ensuring that the content is easily accessible, and the platform is interesting enough to hold user attention. Thus we focus on creating learner-centred designs that are built on the principles of instructional design, content design and user experience. And we employ an iterative design methodology that is built for technology-enabled learning.
How can Tcules help your students?
Oftentimes, students find it difficult to get through eLearning courses due to reasons like lack of engagement, feeling of isolation or emotional disconnect and inaccessibility. We can create designs that help resolve these issues.
What eLearning platforms do we design for?
We can design for Moodle LMS, Canvas LMS, Blackboard Learn amongst other popular platforms. And in case you have a custom-built LMS, we can help you design that too.
Does Tcules partner with schools and institutes for custom learning platforms?
As much as we would love to, we currently do not partner with schools and institutes for their custom learning platforms.
How much do eLearning projects usually cost?
Every eLearning platform has a different target audience and thus slightly different design goals. This makes it difficult to give an average cost. But, we usually charge $25 to $50 per hour based on the complexity and size of the project. And our typical UX projects range anywhere between $5,000 to $25,000 and could go well above $50,000 depending on the scope.
Will our redesign have any impact on your existing business?
Most redesign projects do not have any impact on the business. However, it is important to note that the larger the magnitude of the project, the higher the chances of there being a minor impact.
