Working through the structured dashboard to create learning pathways, I thought of creating a ‘pure, unstructured dashboard’. Some basic reasons why:
- Sometimes there are long drags. Moving an item to a related cluster of elements is one way to shorten them.
- Sometimes a section includes a few items (like two or three syllabus or jobs), so there is wasted space.
- Saving a sort order and items as a dashboard is advantageous. Use dashboards to create smaller subsets and make them dynamic through time.
- Setup dashboards for usage on smartphone and mobile devices. Create dashboards on larger screens, then access them and make quick assignments on a mobile.
