Compliance topics—like emergency preparedness and safety—are requirements for many companies, but companies struggle to gain learning engagement year after year.
We were given the opportunity to think outside the box with instructional design and custom illustration. Though the content could be considered boring, we were able to have a little fun with it by modeling it on the kid’s book Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. After creating the character Mike, we put him in situations required in the OSHA emergency training, as learners watch Mike go through his day.
Based on feedback received throughout the project, the organization's employees were able to review this compliance content in a fresh and creative way. We helped the learners remember key procedures during emergency situations by creating a positive, engaging learning environment. Learners had increased retention and a more enjoyable experience taking the eLearning module.
