Title IX Basics
Instructional Design Process
In this project, I undertook the development of two interactive modules aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of Title IX for solo learners. Following the systematic approach of the ADDIE process, the project unfolded through the following key steps:
- Identified the client's need for a modern and informative solo learning module on Title IX.
- Recognized the absence of a performance goal, guiding the decision not to include a formal assessment.
- Established the primary focus on delivering up-to-date information through an interactive learning experience.
- Consolidated relevant resources on Title IX to ensure accuracy, currency, and relevancy of information.
- Developed a detailed outline, organizing the structure and content flow for the modules.
- Collaborated with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and key executives in regular review sessions to validate content accuracy and relevance.
- Created a storyboard, complete with mockups illustrating each page's layout, interactivity elements, and incorporated accessibility features.
- Utilized the insights gathered during the design phase to begin the actual development of the interactive modules.
- Incorporated multimedia elements, ensuring an engaging learning experience.
- Maintained constant communication with stakeholders to address feedback and make necessary adjustments during the development process.
- Deployed two versions of the modules, each customized to align with the distinct style guides of the client's websites.
- Conducted thorough testing of both versions to identify and address any potential issues or bugs.
- Gathered feedback to gauge the effectiveness of the modules.
- Incorporated insights from the evaluation phase to refine and enhance the overall user experience.
Through the ADDIE process, this project successfully delivered two interactive modules that met the client's requirements for modern and informative content and aligned with the visual identity of each website through customized styling. The collaborative approach with SMEs and key stakeholders ensured the accuracy and relevance of the information presented, contributing to a valuable and engaging learning resource on Title IX. Please note that some accessibility features, including resources, are not available on the portfolio version of this project. The primary focus of the portfolio is to showcase the design, interactivity, and overall structure of the modules. If you require specific information about the accessibility features, please feel free to reach out, and I'll be happy to provide details.
