Illumen worked with the University of Florida to understand the rules and regulations and through instructional design and creative design processes, defined an approach that would best prepare the audiences to be the most effective. Illumen defined three key areas that would help the audience develop their understanding; History, Biology, and Prevention / Decontamination. These micro-lessons would act as building blocks to quickly create the foundations, and add on top of those foundations, what the learner must know to follow protocol and make decisions.
Throughout the course, the learner must complete knowledge checks which allow them to check their understanding and retention of the material, and provide additional information if needed through the course before they continue on.
The course ends in a final assessment. If the learner completes the assessment with a high enough score, they are marked as having completed the course. This information is then sent to both The University of Florida, and the worker’s manager.
Both an English and Spanish version of the course material was created to reach and educated the largest audience possible. Illumen translated and implemented the Spanish version. The final outcome is one course with a language selector at the beginning.
Articulate Storyline was determined as the best development tool to meet the project goals and objectives. It also allows the University of Florida’s team to make some changes to the project when needed.
The University of Florida has a custom programmed learning management system for this project. It was not SCORM, AICC, or Tin Can compliant, and so Illumen worked with the University of Florida’s team to send the data from Storyline to their system to track learner scores and completion status.
