 Completing a Massive Form

What do you do when your audience needs to learn how to fill out a massive and sometimes complicated form? Using a simulation is probably the best option, but what if time and/or funds don’t permit that approach? In a course for the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), we provide step-by-step instructions, a calculation tool, screen captures, and most importantly – a checklist. This is the fourth in a series of five lessons. 

 

 


Electronic Birth Certificate Registration

Birth registrars are responsible for completing birth certificates, which record a lot of information about the mother and her pregnancy. Sometimes mothers are reluctant to share information. Registrars need to explain the importance of birth certificates and how the information is used. This lesson is the first in a series of five lessons for birth registrars.

 


Training Guide

Research shows that learners work harder and perform better when they feel they are engaged with a training guide. In a course for the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), a guide leads learners through our training and provides feedback.

 


 

The HIV Replication Process

HIV case managers need to understand how the virus spreads in the body. Images of the disease process allow learners to create a mental model that facilitates understanding. Animating the process allows the learner to start with foundation information and sequentially build on what they know. We used narrated animation to help learners understand this complicated process. We also provide learners with a job aid based on the animation.
