Why we like it

  • Fantastic videos – well scripted, well acted and immersive stories that are viewed through the eyes of a central character, who shares her inner, honest thoughts with the viewers
  • Bring to life the fact there’s sometimes gray areas around potential harassment cases – but if it’s not clear cut, you don’t just ignore
  • Enables exploration by suggesting learners choose another decision so they can see how it would have played out, even if they got the answer right first time
  • Nice, simple interface and full screen video
  • Neat use of sound when interacting with the menu
    Accessibility options built in

How to improve this elearning

The video is really what shines with this learning module – it’s like watching a soap opera at your desk. (It would be great if it were multi-device, so it could be accessed elsewhere too). In comparison, the pure text delivery of the intros and summaries falls a little flat. Consider using visuals (screengrabs from the videos?), or a bit of audio to spruce them up to ensure they don’t just get skimmed over.
