Exploring Vanuatu Mobile eLearning

Exploring Vanuatu eLearning Mockup

Experience the Course

I designed this xAPI-enabled, mobile friendly eLearning course about Vanuatu as part of a larger Master’s-level research project.

Particularly, I compared the memory and retention of users who took the course with an avatar compared to those who took the course without an avatar. The version linked above is the version without the avatar.

I used the Dick & Carey approach to create the course; I started with clear, well-defined learning objectives, then I designed the assessment. From there, I incorporated text and video-based micro content to support the objectives.

I built the course in Articulate Storyline, and I wrote custom JavaScript to send xAPI statements about the user’s selections. I used this data to analyze the results at the end of the project.

My sample size was small, as this was just a class project, but there was an improvement of 0.5 points (on a 10-point scale) in the avatar version compared to the non-avatar version. The difference, however, was not statistically significant.
