Interactions based on the ‘compliant completion of documentation’ are a resource development staple. They always present an interesting challenge. Representing a ‘real life’ element (paperwork, document, forms, pro-forma) on screen in a meaningful way.
This drawing describes how a interaction that requires the learner to complete an ‘OHS action plan’ could be represented on screen.
I use drawings to complement my learning resource scripts. I try to give as much information as possible to the development team. Sometimes it helps.
There always needs to be something to drive the learner through a learning resource. A thematically relevant scenario or problem that ‘wraps’ the content and assessment is a good way to engage the learner cohort. This method is not without it’s own problems. Not every learner wants a narrative embedded in their learning. Some learners just want to ‘get on with it’.
This simple drawing describes two possible ways of driving the learner through a learning resource.
