Healthcare Online Assessment

My instructional design class at San Diego State University was selected to create a online course to teach patient safety for health care safety credentialing. These are mock-ups of the 200 slide project my team submitted. The instructional method for Far Transfer knowledge is through hands on experience. Without that option, online simulation and testing were the next best option. To simulate the working environment, we based our design on the EPIC electronic healthcare records our users accessed on a daily basis. 

Other design considerations included:

  • Avoided extraneous graphics and design elements that have little to negative impact on learning
  • Created simple navigation locating the learners journey for self-paced learning (adults learners like choices)
  • Color choices, font placement, tables, and audio script complimented one another in layers to avoid distracted learning, based on cognitive load theory
