How to Survive the Holidays

E-Learning Challenge #62: Challenge | Recap

It happened again. You swore you wouldn’t let them sneak up on you and yet, the holidays are here! It was only a few weeks ago that you survived a zombie apocalypse.

Help your fellow community members get a jump on things by sharing your favorite holiday survival tips in this week’s challenge! We know you’re busy so we’re making this week’s challenge an easy one. Take a gander at the following interactives to get some holiday challenge ideas.

Infoposter Quiz

A few years ago Goodwill published a popular infoposter that identified seven types of holiday sweaters. An idea for adapting this example would be to ask users to first identify the type of holiday they’re trying to survive (family feuds, travel trauma, cooking catastrophes, etc) and then branch to a solution.

Where Should I Go On Holiday?

Maybe your best tip for surviving the holidays is to get out of town. Thompson just published an interactive map to help you plan your holiday based on weather preferences.

Assess Holiday Readiness

Okay, you got me. This self-assessment survey was designed for Thanksgiving. But I really like this one. It asks users to rate their experience on a series of tasks and provides customized feedback based on their answers.
