In this short e-learning course, I created an interactive demo comparing two items for the E-Learning Heroes challenge “Showing Interactive Comparisons in E-Learning #385”.
I love science, especially neuroscience, with all the complexities of the human brain, so the theme of this demo is a comparison between the functions of the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala.
I began by identifying overall instructional goals and learning objectives, with prior skills and knowledge in mind.
- The location and functions of the prefrontal cortex
- The location and functions of the amygdala
- How each of these parts of the brain influence human behavior
In the design phase, I solidify learning objectives, lesson plans, instructional strategies, assessments, content, and audio/visual media.
Subject Matter Experts:
Information was gathered from Jean Brown, a Registered Psychologist and professor on the physical and functional parts of the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex. Information was fact-checked to ensure the accuracy of the information.
Using a visual design layout with information about text, visual, navigation, and audio features, I storyboarded the project to ensure for a consistent and clean presentation of materials.
I created course content that includes text, rich visual and audio media, text-to-speech AI, links to outside resources, and a matching activity for evaluation of the learner using Storyline 360.
Along with the lesson, instructional guides were created for presentation, and I made deliverables as takeaways for referencing in the future.
