Interactions

Interactivity keeps learners engaged in their training and gives them control over what they view and when they view it.

Aperture

The size of a camera’s shutter opening (aperture) determines the depth of field in a photograph.         We created a user-centered demonstration of this concept.

 


Definitions

Sometimes you want a creative approach to offering routine content, such as a glossary. We created an interaction that allows users to check definitions they want to see and is a good tool for self-assessment. Click each term to see its description.


Patient Volume Calculator 

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) has an incentive program for health-care providers who have implemented certified Electronic Health Record technology. The online training covers qualifications for the program and how to enroll. This tool allows clinicians to determine if they qualify for the program.


Interactive Timeline 

HIV case managers need to be familiar with the history of the disease and advances in treatment. This type of historical information is often boring for the learner. With the help of our DSHS case management training specialist, we added interesting bits of information such as news clips and celebrities affected by the disease. We took this information and put it in an interactive timeline. Learners can manipulate the timeline and easily access the historical information they want to see.


Learners Control What They See

HIV case managers need to understand guidelines for initiating antiretroviral treatment. We categorize the guidelines to “chunk” the information and allow learners to select what they want to view.
