Rapid Response Training: What You Need to Know About COVID-19 #274

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Training Examples #274: ChallengeRecap

Seven years ago, we started the e-learning challenges to help course designers practice and develop their skills while also building an e-learning portfolio. 

Though the challenges are always practical and based on core e-learning skills (even this one), they aren’t usually tied to specific causes or real-world topics.

I think the last topic-specific challenge we did was during the Ebola virus outbreak. The examples you shared were amazing and helped educate all of us on a difficult topic. 

With COVID-19, we have another opportunity to help others learn about this virus, how it spreads, and how to stay safe.

COVID-19 E-Learning Examples

We’re already seeing some timely and well-designed COVID-19 examples shared in the community. Below is a list of interactions and mini-courses that Allison curated.

If you shared one of the examples, please re-post in this post’s comments so others can offer feedback.

Understanding COVID-19

Last week, Articulate shared a carefully-researched Rise course on the novel coronavirus. If you’re looking for ideas on how to approach this week’s challenge, you’ll find a lot of great inspiration—and information—in this educational resource.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to build a short demo or interaction around the coronavirus disease. You don’t have to create a full course. Instead, focus on something short and quick to address one area of the virus.

Here are a few topic ideas to get you started:

  • General information about COVID-19 and the outbreak
  • How does COVID-19 compare with other infectious diseases?
  • Safety tips for healthcare and aid workers
  • Facts vs. myths about COVID-19
  • What are some typical signs and symptoms of infection?
  • How do people become infected with COVID-19?
  • What do Americans (or citizens of your country) need to know?
  • 5 tips for talking to your kids about COVID-19
  • How does COVID-19 affect the human body?
  • COVID-19: Frequently Asked Questions
  • What can I do? Can it be prevented? Is there a vaccine?

Last Week’s Challenge:

Before you build your rapid response demos, check out the scrolling panel examples your fellow challengers shared over the past week:
