Nuggethead: PwP is a campaign to educate people who are living with HIV

PWP

Why we like it:

  • A great example of the use of a comic/graphic novel approach.
  • Good example of storytelling in elearning.
  • High end illustration makes it very compelling.
  • Good use of voiceover and sound effects.
  • Extra information is permanently available via the slide out tabs.
  • Clear, easy to use navigation.
  • There’s a ‘scenario map’ that can be used to jump quickly between scenes.

Microassist: This training teaches new HIV case managers how HIV replicates and spreads in the body

HIV

Why we like it:

  • Simple design based on animated presentation of information about a specific aspect of the pathology of the virus.
  • Clean clear imagery helps ensure the presentation isn’t over-complicated.
  • Uncluttered interface helps focus attention on the presentation content.
  • Presents the facts very simply, with voice-over.

Smart Sparrow: Learn genetics by collecting genetic information from a patient in a Virtual Lab

learn-genetics1

Why we like it:

  • Provides video ‘help’ function which shows the step-by-step process and leads the learner towards the correct response.
  • Great use of imagery – full-screen background image to situate the learning in a lab, and high quality content illustrations for the activities.
  • Good example of a simulation – lets you conduct the experiments and practise the processes.
  • Scaffolded instructional design – provides guided learning to help you if you get stuck, but doesn’t force the learner to go through training if they are progressing well. Gives learners a chance to take the test again after the training intervention.
  • Gives learner opportunity to do some research first or press ahead in the process.

Why we like it:

  • Great example of borrowing elements of other digital design to enrich elearning.
  • Uses rich multimedia, high-end graphics and layouts.
  • Has all the elements of interactions familiar in elearning such as hotspots and pop-ups.
  • Uses high contrasting colours and fonts for visual enhancement.
  • Good demonstration of the basic principles of graphic design such as proximity and affordance in a learning context.
