Analysis of Interactive Content Tweeted By: Susann48

This Google Maps street view content tweeted by Susann is an example of excellent interactive content with the user. For one, the content on the site is interactive in that it lets users take complete control over the site, allowing one to seamlessly zoom in and out, move forward and backwards, and rotate in all directions.

According to yesterday's slideshow, interactivity "reduces the chances of cognitive overload and encourages learners to engage in each of the cognitive processes mentioned." By this site including the all of the control options like zoom and rotate in clear view for the viewer, cognitive overload is heavily reduced while at the same time encouraging the user of the site to want to engage with each of the options on the screen.

In addition, this site is interactive in how simplistic the user interface is. Typical of Google, everything on the site is logically placed for the viewer as the majority of the options are placed discretely enough at the bottom for the main content to be interacted with without distraction yet visible enough to allow the user to access them quickly.

In closing, great qualities of crisp interactivity are highlighted in this Google Maps content. Users of this content will not be overwhelmed with what is onscreen and will smoothly complete their task at hand.
