Elucidat: 5 Steps to Risk Assessment
One of the best ways to support your learners – before, during or after training – is with an effective job aid. 5 Steps to Risk Assessment helps employers assess their workplace health and safety risks with a minimum of fuss by presenting five key steps, as advised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This job aid uses vertical scrolling navigation and badging to mark each completed step.
Why we like it
- Good use of microlearning to deliver deep learning through short but personalized content.
- Demonstrates vertical scrolling navigation. Scrolling feels more web-based and suits a job aid delivery.
- Demonstrates the Tooltip feature which presents a definition or links to a website when learners click an underlined text area.
- Uses badges to indicate progress through the job aid and completion of each step.
How to improve this elearning
Although linking out to website pages as a source of reference is helpful for learners to answer their questions, it can also be distracting. Linking can also encourage learners to leave the module and not link back, or have difficulty finding their way back to the learning. Placing all links, to external resources and websites, at the end of the module may work better.
The badges, once active, could also be used as a navigation device. This would improve the recap function and allow learners to use the job aid more flexibly.
Badging is a great way to add engagement to learning. In this job aid it is simply used as a visual reference of completion. In elearning courses, we recommend adding a real value to the badge, through points gained in answering certain checkpoint questions correctly or completing certain interactions during the course. Badges in an e-learning context are meaningful to learners when they represent progress in mastering a subject they actually want to learn.
