Engaging the learner

Lack of sleep can leave you feeling like a zombie. Shuffling around, going through the motions: it’s something we can all relate to. Plus, zombies are visually entertaining to look at, right? That’s why we added a slight zombie theme for this course, although we did end up toning it down a little for more sensitive learners than we had originally planned to avoid distracting from the learning.

Speaking of which: learning for this course came with our usual mix of cool animation and rich voiceover, alongside interactive elements and knowledge checks, so learners can go at their own pace. An image map has clickable elements which break out into mini scenes which explain how to sleep well, and this information is replicated as a cool infographic that learners can download and refer to regularly. It’s all capped off with a quick assessment so learners can be assured that the useful information has sunk in.

Peace of mind with testing

Peace of mind with testing

This course also has an assessment at the end which allows learners to test their understanding and helps businesses demonstrate a level of competence in the topic.

With a bank of questions learners will get randomised assessments which means if people do fail the assessment, they aren't faced with the same quiz again; after all you want to test learners knowledge and not their ability to remember the right button to press second time around.
