Client Name: American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)
Launch Date: December 2021.
My Role: project management and development of all educational materials.
1. Develop a fully self-paced CONTINUUM course that will be provided to all new users. This product will not substitute the fully live or hybrid courses, but will be an additional resource users can refer to in order to improve their learning experience.
2. Design interactive activities and hands-on practice that will help users to practice navigating the CONTINUUM tool without logging into a demo site.
3. Communicate to users that this new resource is available to them by reaching out to points of contact and launching a marketing campaign.
Course Development Process
1. Draft course agenda and structure
Identify all the content that should be included in the course, and compile all the needed materials and/or SMEs.
2. Design interactive components
Identify opportunities for adding interactive components to the course agenda and develop those components in Articulate Storyline.
3. Test the interactive components and review for accessibility
Identify opportunities to make the course more accessible by adding captions, increasing contrast, providing PDF printouts of activities.
4. Final review
Review the course to make sure that all the needed content has been incorporated and that all the individual lessons and interactive components flow together.
5. Launch the course
Upload the course to the LMS and update the user resources webpage on the CONTINUUM website informing users of a new resource that is available to them.
1. Designing and building a cohesive, interactive, and comprehensive 8-hour course is a challenging task because there are many things that need to be taken into consideration, such as:
2. Deciding on the best format to present the information in (text, table, image, knowledge check, simulation, etc.)
3. Making sure that the content flows in a way that would make sense to the learner and will optimize the learning experience.
4. Emphasizing certain components over others to make sure that learners feel confident, and yet are prepared to practice after completing the course.
