Death Investigation Online is immersive, interactive professional development converted from one of the popular face-to-face courses into an asychronous online course using Moodle and Lectora Inspire.
I took on the roles of instructional designer, graphic designer, and elearning developer for this project.
Learning Experience Designer and Developer
LX Design, eLearning, Development, Grahic Design, Coding, Conceptualising Ideas and Prototyping
During the development of this course, I was able to more fully realize some of the best-practices of course design. An overarching murder case with the participants as the death investigator put all of the lessons in context, allowing participants to apply their new knowledge to different case-related problems.
Context, Challenge, Activity, Feedback
Page-turning text slides were reduced in favor of a variety of interactive challenges. However, help remained available in the form of a contextual death investigation guide and cumulative field notes journal that kept tabs on the case. Feedback was also enhanced to make it intrinsic, offering realistic consequences for a user’s actions on the case.
