Learner experience (LX) design is a multidisciplinary approach to design, incorporating user
experience, instructional design, and learning science pedagogies to create digital learning
experiences that effectively manage cognitive load and foster student understanding. LX shifts
the focus from what learners need to know and be able to do, to ways in which instruction or
tools can support learners as they construct their knowledge. LX design cycles are done in rapid
iterations and include participatory design from students. The goal of LX is to create experiences
that center the learner—not just through instruction and assessment that accomplishes the
learning outcomes, but also in the aesthetics, enjoyability, and quality of the learning experience.
