Increase the quality and effectiveness of humanitarian aid programs
This client is the world’s largest humanitarian network that works toward meeting the needs and improving the lives of vulnerable people during and after disasters and health emergencies.
They wanted Integra to develop an e-Learning course to increase the quality and effectiveness of humanitarian aid programs by reducing the diversion of aided resources from their intended beneficiaries and purposes.
This course was expected to meet its key objective of reducing corruption in humanitarian operations. The course was intended towards their employees and volunteers working in the humanitarian sector along with local partners, donors, beneficiaries and the general public.
Our Strategy (Sure Shot, Never Miss)
Complex branching scenarios with decision trees
Integra designed the e-Learning course by putting the learner to a complex braching scenario with 25+ decision points. Each decision point was followed by a debrief section, where learners can explore key concepts, best practices and common misconceptions.
Integra developed the e-Learning courseware in HTML5 with responsive design that will allow device-agnostic deployment for multi-device learning (PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones) with a form factor of 4–6 inches. For complex animations, videos were used and plugins were provided to make the course responsive for PCs.
To make the course compatible with mobile phone, separate video source was used. The local storage feature allowed tracking of user’s progress and retrieving.
The development team had to design an intuitive user interface to suit the branding guidelines of the customer.
Online help and a short tutorial were provided to help the users familiarize with the course navigations and elements, as well as implemented a variety of course interactions for scenarios and assessments such as disaster simulation, drag and drop, quick choices, branching choices, power sliders and scene explore.
Key Results (Beyond Your Expectations)
Experience based learning contributing to day-to-day activities
The branching-scenario based approach helped the learner to relate the content to their day-to-day activities.
This course resulted in a considerable reduction of corruption in humanitarian operations and early reporting of corruption. It also helped in better organizational policy adoption and action.
The tracking and retrieving mechanism for user progress helped the management to evaluate each leaner and provide appropriate feedback.
